COMMUNICATIONS 

Regarding a letter from the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, 
requesting comments on a proposed Charter Amendment concerning 
abandonment of transit service, President Sanger requested that 
the General Manager prepare a response in opposition to the 
Charter amendment with the reasons therefore. 

Regarding the request for comments on a proposed Charter Amendment 
relating to creation of a Transportation Commission, President 
Sanger said that if this is the same version that had been intro- 
duced by Supervisor Molinari there is no action to be taken at 
this time because the Commission is on record in support of the 
proposal and had requested that the Board of Supervisors take 
the matter from the table. 

Regarding the request for comments from the Board of Supervisors 
concerning a proposed policy declaration relating to acceptance 
of Municipal Railway Fast Passes on BART, Mr. Sklar said that 
no action was necessary as this represents the Board's support 
of efforts being made by staff. 

************* 



82-006 



President Sanger announced that the Commission had met in executive 
session immediately prior to this meeting and adopted Resolution 
No. 82-0002, authorizing a supplemental appropriation in the 
amount of $838,577 for services of the City Attorney's office 
and Resolution No. 82-0003 in the amount of $545,000 to fund the 
cost of litigation in the case of Russ Building Partnership vs. 
C.C.S.F. 

************* 

PUBLIC HEARING — To consider modification in the schedule of 
rates, fares and charges for Municipal Railway cable car service. 

Ms. Jo Ivester of the Bureau of Financial Management said that 
staff recommends raising the adult cash fare to $1.00. This 
would not affect anyone using a Fast Pass, Discount Fast Pass, 
or discount riders paying in cash. Discount riders would be 
allowed to transfer to the cable car free of charge. Adults 
would be required to pay an additional 50C to transfer to the 
cable car system. Sunday and Holiday Day Passes would be 
available on all days of the week and the price would be raised 
to $3.00. This fare structure is estimated to yield an additional 
$1.3 to $1.9 million per year. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe opposed the higher fare structure. He said that 
the reasons given for the dollar fare are: 1. stick the tourists, 
2. residents won't be hurt because they can use Fast Passes and 
Discount Fast Passes, and .3. the money is needed for the diesel 
rehabilitation program. All of these reasons could be used to 
justify a $1.00 fare on all Muni service. He suggested selling 
rolls of tokens to residents or special tickets so that the 
occasional rider will not have to pay the $1.00 fare. 

Ms. Lucy Maisel of 2164 Hyde Street, said she is in favor of 
charging the tourist but there should be some arrangement made 
for those San Francisco riders who don't use a Fast Pass. She 
suggested allowing residents to show proof of residency or 
purchase special tickets or receive a refund for the difference 
between the cable car fare and other Muni service. 

Ms. Enid Lim, representing Chinatown TRIP, requested that San 
Francisco residents be allowed to purchase a multiple ride 
ticket other than a Fast Pass that would allow them to ride 
cable cars at the same fare as other Muni service. She said 
there are 18 Muni lines that cost more per passenger to operate 
than cable car routes. The riders of those lines are not being 
asked to pay a higher fare. 

Ms. Lillie Spencer said consideration should be given to San 
Francisco residents. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved, Commissioner Lenvin second, 
a motion to continue this public hearing and post notices to 
that effect on the cable cars. President Sanger voted "aye", 
Commissioners Flynn and McCrea voted "no". Commissioner Flynn 
moved to continue this matter until January 26, 1982, 
Commissioner Hsieh seconded. President Sanger and Commissioner 
Lenvin voted "aye", Commissioner McCrea voted "no". 



82-007 



President Sanger requested that staff include in the fare 
schedule the receipt proposed to be issued by cable cars to 
transferring passengers and that alternatives for local 
residents be presented including advantages, disadvantages 
and a recommendation. 



************ 



Resolution No. 82-0020 — Authorizing professional services 
contract with Kaiser Engineer s/DMJM for Rehabilitation and 
Modernization of the Geneva Carbarn Site. 

Commissioner Hsieh said that the Commission had directed 
staff to include the architectural discipline in this project 
He said he did not object to the firm selected, but to the 
process. The selection panel did not include an architect 
and all descriptions of the project referred to engineering. 

President Sanger requested that the concept design developed 
by the team be brought to the Commission for review before 
working drawings are begun.

PUBLIC MEETING 

To consider modifications in the schedule of rates, fares and 
charges for the Municipal Railway, and obtain public comments. 

Information justifying the need for a fare increase and presenting 
16 alternative schedules was made available to everyone present. 
A copy of same, titled Municipal Railway Proposed Modifications 
to Fare Schedule for April 1982 , dated January 18, 1982, is made 
a part of these minutes. 

Mr. Sklar using enlarged charts presented the proposed modifications 
in detail. 

Commissioner Lenvin asked if the proposed schedules are calculated 
to provide sufficient revenue to allow the Municipal Railway to 
meet the 33% farebox requirement to maintain AB-1107 eligibility 
for a two year period. Mr. Sklar answered affirmatively. He 
said this fare increase should take us from April 1982 to 
April 1984. 

President Sanger opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Walter H. Sibley, Vice President of the Sunnyside Neighborhood 
Association, spoke in opposition to a fare increase. He said 
it is ridiculous to pay more money for less service. If 
efficiencies were made in the operation Muni wouldn't need a 
fare increase. 

Mr. Gary Washington spoke in favor of increasing the fare for 
students to at least 25C. 

Mr. "Skip" Hansen inquired as to the amount of money being spent 
for vandalism and accidents, and how much is being lost from 
students not paying and operators stealing. He suggested raising 
the fare for adolescent students and the riding public to 
$20.00 for a monthly pass. 

Mr. Arthur Mandel said that downtown should assume more of the 
costs of Muni service. 

Ms. Lorraine Yeoman said that some sort of increase is in order. 
Workers have to use transit to get to and from the downtown area. 
Senior citizens often have no other i ode of transportation. She 
said it's absurd to give students a big discount when they are 
the ones responsible for the vandalism and the discomfort of 
the other riders. 



82-010 



Ms. Shirley Rosenberg said that all Muni employees, police 
officers and mailmen should pay a fare. She supported a 5C fare 
for everyone. 

Mr. Julius Zamacona, representing several groups in the outer 
Mission District, spoke in opposition to a fare increase at this 
time. 

Mr. Paul Fechtner said that if everyone who rides Muni would 
think of courtesy, safety and service for themselves it would 
be communicated throughout the system. 

Ms. Lois V. Barnes said that if everyone paid the proper fare 
there wouldn't be a need for an increase. She suggested a 
straight fare and a 5C or IOC charge for transfers to eliminate 
fare disputes. 

Mr. Harold C. Swope said if the Fast Pass was increased to 
$20.00 it should be enough for 2 years. He asked if transfers 
were eliminated and the fare kept the same, would that provide 
enough money. Commissioner Flynn said that elimination of 
transfers would be an inequity for those needing to transfer to 
get from one part of the City to another. 

Ms. Eileen D. Walton, San Francisco Area Secretary, Citizens 
Action League, said that San Francisco is a small city and 
is not large enough to charge 75$. If everyone were guaranteed 
a seat, people may be willing to pay 75C. 

Ms. Paula Land, of the San Francisco Muni Coalition, said that 
the Commission is assuming that a fare increase is necessary 
and inevitable without having complete information. She 
questioned the allocation of AB-1107 funds and the purpose of 
its 33% farebox recovery requirement. 

Mr. Stanley Wunderlick said that there appears to be inefficient 
use of the equipment. Some buses are filled to capacity and 
others are only half full. 

Mr. Lee Greever, representing St. Francis of Assisi senior housing, 
said that many senior citizens are on fixed incomes. A raise 
of 500%, from 5C to 25C, is a dramatic increase for people 
dependent on public transportation to get to medical appoint- 
ments and nutrition programs. He suggested that Muni increase 
services in the Mission corridor rather than subsidize BART. 
Commissioner McCrea pointed out that in the basic fare structure 
proposal the increase in the Senior Fast Pass is from $2.50 to 
$5.00 or $6.00, which is not a 500% increase. 

Ms. Magdalena Chavez, representing 75 people from the Salvation 
Army Senior Citizens Program in the Mission, said that these 
senior citizens have a very low income because they haven't 
worked enough years to have enough retirement income to live on. 
Even 5C is a hardship. She asked that the fare not be raised 
because these senior citizens would not be able to have their 
needs met. (Ms. Chavez spoke in Spanish, which was translated 
by Ms. Mercedes Hernandez, Department of Civil Service.) 



82-011 



Ms. Melody LaMar , a member of the Gray Panthers, said that 
many senior and handicapped passes are being abused. If this 
abuse were stopped, Muni's income would go up. 

Ms. Jane Kinzler, Activities Director of the Salvation Army 
Nutrition Project, opposed a raise in senior citizens' fare. 
Many people attending nutrition programs only eat one meal a 
day. They use the bus to get to and from the nutrition sites 
and to and from the grocery store. A fare increase may make 
the difference in whether or not they eat some days.

PUBLIC MEETING 

To consider modifications in the schedule of rates, fares and 
charges for the Municipal Railway, and obtain public comments. 

Information justifying the need for a fare increase and pre- 
senting 16 alternative schedules was made available to everyone 
present. A copy of same, titled Municipal Railway Proposed 
Modifications to Fare Schedule for April 1982 , dated January 
18, 1982, is made a part of these minutes. 

Mr. Sklar, using enlarged charts presented the proposed modifi- 
cations in detail. 

President Sanger opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Al Lewis, representing Ingleside Terrace O.M.I.C.A., spoke 
in opposition to any fare increase because Muni has not 
demonstrated efficiency in fare collection. 

Mr. Dwight Toland said that Muni should have strict rules for 
its drivers. 

Mr. Robert W. Moore, a member of the Board of Directors of the 
Gray Panthers and a member of several other organizations, 
inquired about the amount of federal money received over the 
last five years. He suggested that off duty police officers 
be required to ride Muni to catch people using the back 
door, and that these offenders be fined $200. 

Mr. R. Boyd, a Muni driver, said that it's difficult to control 
the back door. He suggested using transfers only at transfer 
points, charging for transfers and using zones. 

Mr. Fred Ruge of Consumer Action Now, said that more than one 
rate will confuse drivers. He suggested selling an annual 
Fast Pass, selling Fast Passes to businesses for their 
employees and letting senior citizens and students ride free. 

Mr. Jim Buker, representing the San Francisco Muni Coalition, 
said that AB-1107 funds represent only 7% of the budget, which 
is being used as the tail that wags the dog insofar as the 
fare policy is concerned. He said alternatives to AB-1107 
should be developed. 



82-014 



Mr. John Oakes said that extending a discount to food stamp and 
A.F.D.C. recipients would be a bureaucratic nightmare. 

Mr. Nate Knodt said he has riden transit in many other cities. 
San Francisco has the best frequency of service. He said 
he favors a fare increase and prefers plan #6. 

Ms. Martina Rysk said she wouldn't mind paying more for peak 
service if more buses were on the line. 

Mr. Kenneth L. Farmer said that the service should be improved 
first, and then ask for a fare increase. 

Mr. Sam Kearns said if there has to be a 33% increase it should 
be implemented in phases. He said senior citizens, students 
and handicapped people have no right to special fares. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans, said that the 
budget should be released before a fare increase is proposed. 
He suggested, that the Commission "bite the bullet" by 
doubling the fare to $1.00 to take care of 4 to 6 years 
and leaving the Fast Pass in place. 

Mr. "Skip" hansen suggested raising the Fast Pass to $20.00 
and charging students over 12 years of age a full fare. 

Ms. Doris E. Simpson said that 2 years ago the public was 
promised the same service at the higher fare, but we don't 
have it. She said a fare increase isn't needed, there 
are too many unemployed people who find it hard enough to 
pay $16.00.

The Minutes of the special meeting of December 18, 1981 
were approved. 

SPECIAL ORDER OF BUSINESS 

Election of Officers for the year 1982 

Commissioner McCrea nominated Commissioner Flynn for President. 
He said that Commissioner Flynn is the senior member of the 
Commission and has a strong understanding of the workings of 
the Municipal Railway. In this upcoming year when such issues 
as a fare increase, establishment of an assessment district 
and creation of a transportation commission will be addressed, 
he is uniquely qualified to lead this Commission. 

Commissioner Hsieh seconded the nomination. He said that 
Commissioner Flynn has proven himself to be someone who speaks 
up on the issues. He will make an outstanding president for 
the coming year. 

Nominations were closed. Commissioner Flynn was unanimously 
elected president. 

Commissioner Sanger said that it had been a great pleasure 
being president of the Commission this last year. This is a 
terrific Commission and a terrific organization. It's an 
exciting Commission to work on. We deal with some exciting and 
challenging issues — long term planning in terms of the use of 
the Tuolumne watershed, the Water Department and the overall 
transportation system. It has been a pleasure. He said it is 
an equal or greater pleasure to turn the gavel over to the 
new president. 

Commissioner McCrea said that Commissioner Sanger is due a big 
vote of thanks by the City and by this Commission for the 
leadership he has given the Commission this year. He has 
been untiring in the giving of his time and in trying to move 
this Commission into a position of dealing with the issues of 
policy making, long term planning and at the same time 
keeping an eye on day to day operations. 

President Flynn, in accepting the gavel, commended Commissioner 
Sanger for an outstanding term as president.

PUBLIC HEARING — To consider modification in the schedule of 
rates, fares and charges for Municipal Railway Cable Car 
service. (Continued from meeting of January 12, 1982.) 

President Sanger opened the meeting for additional public 
comments, hearing no response the public hearing was closer! 



82-022 



Ms. Jo Ivester of the Bureau of Finance, PUC, presented the follow- 
ing revisions to the staff proposal: 1) acceptance of valid 
transfers from adults without payment of an added fare; 2) intro- 
duction of a 30-ride ticket to be sold for $15.00 at the cable car 
barn only; and 3) introduction of a $2.00 round trip ticket, avail- 
able only from fare machines. The projected increase in fare 
revenue is between $1.6 and $2.4 million annually. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to approve the staff proposal with the 
exception that a "valid transfer" be changed to a "valid transfer 
plus 50C. : ' Commissioner Flynn seconded. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe requested that the public hearing be reopened 
since there has been a significant change in the staff proposal. 
President Sanger reopened the public hearing. 

Mr. Rolfe said that if a person lives along the cable car line 
and makes a trip requiring a transfer to another area of th^ City, 
he will be charged an additional 50C to get home when transferring 
to the cable car. He suggested that the 30-ride ticket be reduced 
to 15 or 20 rides so that the initial purchase price would not bt 
as great. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans, said that the 
mandate of the people is to raise funds. He supported the 30- 
ride ticket and payment of an additional 50C with transfers. 

The public hearing was closed. 

President Sanger stated that he did not believe in having two 
different fare schedules for different parts of the system, 
therefore, he would vote against this fare schedule. 

On the question, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea, Lenvin and 
Hsieh voted "aye". Commissioner Sanger voted "no". 

************* 
Item No. 11 — Regarding entering into an agreement with Turlock 
Irrigation District and Pacific Gas and Electric Company. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested copies of all previous agreements. 
This matter was taken off calendar for review by the Utilities 
General Counsel. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0037 — Authorizing an agreement with the 
Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District to 
continue free transfer privileges. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that this commission go on 
record and that the President write to the Speaker of the State 
Assembly indicating concern regarding the proposal to terminate 
the ferry service while this Commission is embarked on a program 
which has demonstrated its increased usefulness in carrying 
passengers to and from San Francisco. 

************* 
Resolution No. 82-0038 — Authorizing revision in the route of 
the No. 26 - VALENCIA motor coach. 

Ms. Sansome, a resident of the 300 block of Whitney Street, 
said that the street is too narrow for operation of a bus and 
automobile parking. 

82-023 



Mr. Michael Monley, a resident of the 300 block of Whitney 
Street, said that he was delighted to hear that the 10 - 
Monterey bus was being rerouted off Whitney Street. He opposed 
routing the 26 - Valencia on Whitney Street, even in one 
direction. 

Mr. Ricardo Hernandez, 40 Harper Street requested that the 
Commission not take all the transportation off the hill. 

Ms. Catherine Laughran, a resident of Sanchez Street for 43 
years, said that she does not have other transportation. The 
street was not too narrow for the 10 - Monterey. She supported 
the staff proposal to reroute the 26 - Valencia. 

********** 

Commissioner McCrea questioned staff rerouting the 44 - 
O'Shaughnessy and abandoning five blocks of the line without 
neighborhood meetings or a Commission hearing. Mr, Peter 
Straus, Director of Planning, explained that staff intends to 
operate a shuttle bus starting January 27, 1982 over the aban- 
doned portion of the line to the new terminal. 

Commissioner Sanger moved that staff is hereby directed that 
shuttle service is not to be used on line 44 - O'Shaughnessy 
and that this Commission consider the matter at its next 
regular meeting, on February 9, 1982. Commissioner Lenvin 
seconded the motion. Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin and Sanger 
voted "aye". Commissioners McCrea and Hsieh voted "no". 

********** 

Item No. 16 — Regarding a request for proposals to study 
problems with the LRV pantograph system. 

Commissioner McCrea requested that staff submit the request 
for proposals defining the work to be done. This item was

PUBLIC MEETING 

To consider modifications in the schedule of rates, fares, and 
charges for the Municipal Railway, and obtain public comments. 

Information justifying the need for a fare increase and pre- 
senting 16 alternative schedules was made available to everyone 
present. A copy of same, titled Municipal Railway Proposed 
Modifications to Fare Schedule for April 1982 , dated January 18, 
1982, is made a part of these minutes. 

Ms. Jo Ivester of the Bureau of Financial Management, presented 
the proposed modifications in detail. 

Mr. Jim Rourke said labor costs will continue to go up until the 
City does something about it. Auto workers are at a stalemate 
now because there aren't enough jobs to go around. If Muni had 
competition there would be perfect service for "two bits a crack." 

President Flynn said that salaries are set by a formula passed 
by the voters. 

Mr. Tim Leano inquired about transferring from one transit system 
to another. Mr. Bruce Bernhard, Manager of Financial Analysis, 
said that the department is negotiating with other transit 
operators, but it is a lengthy process. 

Ms. Marion Aird said that New York City does not grant the same 
type of discount fare to students that San Francisco does. She 
suggested that the discount not apply on weekends, holidays 
and during summer vacation. She felt that senior citizens 
could pay more than 5£. She said, if the Fast Pass is raised 
to $28.00 she will drive to work. 

Mr. Randy Vanderkar said that he makes the minimum wage. 
Sometimes he rides to work and walks home. He said he can't 
afford to pay more for a Fast Pass. 

Ms. Barbara Klitzk opposed a 75C fare with an off peak discount. 
If the fare has to be increased she said she preferred alternative 
II. 

Ms. Susan Blomberg suggested leaving the fare at 50$ and in- 
creasing the Fast Pass to $22.00 which would equal two trips 
per work day. Student discounts should only apply during school 
commute hours. She said that welfare recipients already receive 



82-027 



the dollar equivalent of the cost of a Fast Pass. Why should 
they receive a further discount? She suggested that Muni cut 
its labor costs by reducing driver absenteeism and allowing 
drivers to be terminated and then reinstated. 

Mr. Joseph Freedman stated that at the time of the last fare 
increase the public was assured that in addition to a fare 
increase money would be raised by establishing an assessment 
district and a development fee. These have not yet been 
successfully applied. He suggested that the City use its surplus 
at the end of the year to subsidize Muni rather than reduce 
property taxes. We should move toward a cash-less system — a dollar 
fare with no transfers. The driver would issue a day pass 
instead of a transfer. 

Ms. Lili Spencer questioned the difference in the percentage 
of increase for different fare categories. She asked if 
operating costs will be reduced when Fast Passes can be used on 
BART. Commissioner McCrea replied that ridership has increased 
20% in the last 2 years. Any service freed on the Mission 
corridor will be redistributed to other areas of the City where 
the demand for service exceeds our present capacity. Ms. 
Spencer said that fares are being raised again before getting 
downtown to pay its fair share. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, said 
that 2 years ago San Francisco Tomorrow supported the fare 
increase as part of a total revenue package that would raise 
other fees and taxes. The fees and taxes were never implemented. 
Before raising fares these other revenue sources should be put 
on the ballot again. AB-1107 should be amended to remove the 
33% farebox requirement. Better marketing of Muni would increase 
customers and revenue. He said that the business community and 
downtown are not paying its fair share. 

Mr. Michael Louie, representing Chinatown T.R.I. P., said that 
he is pleased to see that discounts are proposed for lower 
income people but considering the number of people it may not 
be an equitable situation. 

Mr. Paul Merland said that the surcharge for express service 
should be restored. A split fare is not workable. He preferred 
plan #2. If the off peak discount is considered, he said he 
would favor plan #10. 

Mr. David A. Wannerstrom, representing the Bay Chapter of the 
Sierra Club, spoke against a fare increase. He questioned the 
33% farebox recovery requirement and cited other counties which 
have a lower percentage of farebox recovery. He suggested other 
funding sources such as an assessment district or sales tax. 

Ms. M. J. Davis, representing George Wong, Chair of the Trans- 
portation Sub-Committee of the Commission on Aging, stated that 
the sub-committee is opposed to any increase in fares for 
senior citizens. 



82-028 



Ms. Nina H. Eldesser said that if fares are raised people v/ill 
use their cars, adding to traffic and air pollution. She sug- 
gested increasing revenue through more advertising. She said 
that the 5C fare should be raised to 25C. 

Mr. Richard Gorin said that the matter of subsidizing senior 
citizens, students and handicapped persons is one for the City 
not for Muni. He suggested a single fare for everyone and a 
single Fast Pass and then let the City make passes available 
at reduced costs to certain classes. Commissioner Lenvin replied 
that the City Attorney and attorneys for the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission have advised that City funds cannot 
be used to meet the farebox requirement. 

Mr. Steve Rabisa commented that the 14-Express bus had been 
discontinued on only 1 day's notice. Now, it's operating 
again. He said there should be no increase without better 
service. There should be no increase for senior citizens. In 
response to questions from Commissioner Lenvin, he said any 
increase should be tied to the individuals ability to pay. 

Ms. Angie Alancon requested consideration for unemployed people 
who have to take the bus 2 or 3 times a day to look for a job. 
She said that Muni is losing money from people entering by the 
rear door. The drivers don't do anything about it. She said 
she would agree with a fare increase for students on weekends 
and 5C more for senior citizens. 

Mr. Bruce Marshall said that he thought MTC would pay BART for 
the cost of honoring Fast Passes. Commissioner McCrea replied 
that the reimbursement v/ill be from funds that Muni would have 
otherwise received. 

Ms. N. Lee Dickens said that senior citizens should pay their 
share because many of them live better than poor people. 

Mr. Fred Ruge, representing Consumer Action Nov;, suggested that 
Muni replace double seats with single seats to increase the 
capacity of each bus. He said that according to Muni staff it 
would cost $4 million to convert the fleet. Mr. Ruge gave the 
Commission 3 checks, totalling $700.00, which he had raised for 
this purpose.

President Flynn announced that the Commission met in executive 
session immediately prior to this meeting. Resolution No. 82- 
0045 was adopted authorizing counsel to notify the plaintiff 
in the case of Turlock and Modesto Irrigation Districts v. City 
and County of San Francisco that this Commission elects not to 
proceed with arbitration.

of the Public Utilities Commission 

Resolution No. 82-0044 - Adopting modifications in the schedule 
of rates, fares and charges for the Municipal Railway. 

Copies of the above are on file in the office of the Secretary 
of the Public Utilities Commission 

************* 

Public Hearing to consider modifications in the schedule of 
rates, fares and charges for the Municipal Railway, and obtain 
public comments. 

Mr. Sklar presented three fare schedules as the staff's recom- 
mendation after considering the testimony given at the three 
previous public meetings. He said that these schedules reduce 
the fare to the bare minimum, that would still enable us to 
receive AB 1107 funds and meet the budget requirements. The 
schedules are as follows : 

A. Adults $ .60; Fast Pass $23.00; discount Cash Fare $ .25; 
discount Fast Pass $5.00; except discount cash fare would 
not apply to students , but students would be able to pur- 
chase the discount Fast Pass. 

B. Extending a discount to individuals receiving General 
Assistance and Aid to Families with Dependent Children 

(AFDC) : Adults $ .60; Fast Pass $24.00; discount Cash Fare 
$ .25; Senior, Student and Handicapped Fast Pass $5.00; 
General Assistance and AFDC discount Fast Pass $12.00. 

C. Extending a discount to include food stamp recipients: 
Adults $ .60; Fast Pass $24.00; discount Cash Fare $ .25; 
Senior, Student and Handicapped Fast Pass $5.00; General 
Assistance, AFDC and food stamp recipients discount Fast 
Pass $15.00. 

In addition, Mr. Sklar said that he is recommending that the 
Commission consider revision of its transfer policy at a later 
date to reduce abuse. He proposed that the fares for Candlestick 
Park, per round trip, be raised to: 

A. Adults $3.00 cash; or Fast Pass plus $1.00 cash; or one 
ticket from a 9- ride ticket book to be purchased for 
$20.00. 

B. Students, Senior and Handicapped Individuals $2.00 cash 
or Fast Pass plus $1.00 cash. 



C2-031 



The only change in cable car fares would be adjusting the cash 
fare for boarding with a transfer the difference between $ .60 
and $1.00 rather than $ .50 and $1.00. Charter rates would 
remain the same. 

In response to a question from Commissioner Sanger, Mr. Sklar 
said that he is proposing a $10.00 summer Fast Pass for students, 
valid for the months of June, July, August and September. 

President Flynn opened the meeting to the public. 

Mr. John Patrick Quinn, representing the Nutrition Program for 
Elderly, said that the downtown assessment district should pay 
two-thirds of the cost of operating Muni. He suggested that 
corporations buy Fast Passes for their employees. 

Ms. Ruth Perry said that in Ireland senior citizens ride free. 
She said that it's appalling that San Francisco can't do some- 
thing for its senior citizens. 

Mr. Winton G. Jones stated that the fare proposal calls for a 

10 C increase for the adult fare but senior citizens will be 

paying five times more for the single fare and double for the 
Fast Pass. 

Ms. Annie Jackson said that seniors will have to pay more but 
they are not getting the service they are paying for now. 

Mr. Fred Ruge, representing Consumer Action Now, said that 
under no circumstances should senior citizens have to pay more. 
They deserve to ride free. 

Mr. Steve Hurst indicated that his point had already been made. 

Mr. Walter L. Knox, Chairman ABAG Citizens Committee for the 
Aging, spoke in opposition to any increase for senior citizens 
and handicapped individuals. 

Mr. Walter Pluth said that service has deteriorated with a 
100% increase. We don't need an increase, we need a new staff. 

Mr. Walter H. Sibley, representing Sunnyside Neighborhood 
Association, said that working people will be taxed by this 
increase. Changes should be made in the operational and admin- 
istrative structure of Muni, not in the fares. He suggested 
waiting for a year to see what the federal and state govern- 
ments do regarding funding for transit. 

Ms. Dcina Norman indicated that her point had already been made. 

Mr. Phillip Seronick said if there must be an increase it should 
not be more than IOC. He said student discounts should be 
limited to the hours between 6:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.; senior 
citizens and handicapped individuals should only pay 5C; blind 
persons should ride free at all times. 

Mr. John Bardis said that the Commission should have its staff 
provide information on Muni over the last 4-5 years that would 
justify this increase. President Flynn said that staff has 
provided sufficient information for him to make a decision on 
the fares. 

Ms. Thelma Kavanagh, Chair of the Senior Housing Political 
Action Committee, requested that the Commission leave the 
senior pass alone. She said many senior citizens can not 
distinguish between a nickel and a quarter. She said that 
senior citizens are willing to pay 10C, but they don't want 
restricted hours. 

82-032 



Ms. Shirley Rosenberg said that people who work for Muni 
should pay a fare. The fares should be returned to 5* for 
everyone like it was in 1944. 

Ms. Barbara Brannon said that she works at a senior center 
where they ask for a 75* donation for a meal. Often people 
can't pay even that amount. If people can't afford food then 
they won't be able to afford increased costs of transportation 
to meal sites. 

Ms. L. Fifer said she feels students should pay more. She 
questioned the difference in the proposed increase - 20% for 
the cash fare and 33% for the Fast Pass. 

Mr. Fred Perry - no response. 

Mr. George Wong, President of the Commission of Aging, said 
that the Transportation Committee has taken the position that 
there should be no increases for senior citizens. He said the 
full Commission will adopt its position tomorrow, February 3, 
19 82. President Flynn replied that the Public Utilities Com- 
mission will act today. 

Mr. Julius Zamacoma said that it's not safe to ride Muni and 
the service is getting worse every day. 

Mr. Paul Fechtner asked if any provisions have been made for a 
bond issue for Muni. President Flynn replied "no". Mr. 
Fechtner said that San Francisco has one of the best transit 
systems in the world. He suggested that everyone practice 
safety, courtesy and service. 

Ms. Melody Lamar, representing the Gray Panthers of San Fran- 
cisco, said that the front seats should be reserved for senior 
citizens and handicapped persons. 

Ms. Lilo Wilde stated that the maximum that senior citizens' 
fares should be raised is IOC, which is 100% above the current 
fare. 

Mr. Will Cole representing the Recreation Center for Handicapped 
said that his agency services 700 people. The cost of their 
field trip program for disabled persons will increase at least 
300% under the proposed fare. Mr. Sklar suggested that the 
agency purchase Fast Passes for their field trips. 

Mr. Barry Pearl, a member of the Board of Directors of the 
District 11 Residents Association and Sunset Neighborhoods 
United, spoke in opposition to a fare increase. He said he 
will urge the Board of Supervisors and local legislators to 
amend AB 1107 regarding its 33% farebox requirement. He 
supported implementation of the assessment district and develop- 
ment fee before fares are raised. 

Mr. David M. Lyons, an AC Transit driver, stated that fares 
are increasing all over the country. Riders and drivers 
should unite to stop the fare increase. 

Ms. Joyce Hall, representing 14 groups in the southeast section 
of San Francisco, spoke in opposition to a fare increase. She 
said service levels have not increased to this area. There arp 
no light rail vehicles, no cable cars and no trolleys serving 
the area. Candlestick Park is serviced bettor than any area 
of San Francisco.

%*C! 



Mr. Gerald Wood - no response. 

Ms. Anna Krivonic said that senior citizens that live in the 
Tenderloin should be able to get around the City and should not 
be penalized by raising fares. 

Ms. Kathi Smith, representing the Disabled Democratic Club, 
said that two of the public meetings held in the State Building 
were not accessible to the handicapped. She opposed the fare 
increase. 

Mr. Cyrus C. Palmer, a retired Muni conductor, suggested elimin- 
ating transfers and adding 10-15C onto the fare. 

Ms. Yvonne S. Golden, representing the San Francisco Black 
Leadership Forum, requested that the Commission explore methods 
of increasing operational efficiencies as a means of reducing 
costs to the end that no fare increase is necessary. Should the 
Commission approve an increase, she requested that it not exceed 
the following: regular cash fare $ .55; Fast Pass $20.00; senior 
citizens, students, handicapped, general assistance recipients 
and AFDC recipients $ .20 cash fare and $5.00 Fast Pass. 

Mr. Frank Cerda spoke in opposition to raising student fares. 

Ms. Frances Dyer, a senior citizen, said it would be a great 
burden if the fare were raised. If it must be raised, she 
suggested $ .10, but said that $5.00 is too much for a senior 
pass. 

The public hearing was closed. 

Commissioner McCrea said that he did not believe this Commission 
should recommend schedules B or C or any other schedule that 
would extend discounts beyond the current level. The Commission 
should state that if the Board of Supervisors wishes to take 
such an action, these are schedules which we feel would be 
appropriate. This is a transportation commission not a social 
services commission. 

Commissioner Sanger proposed a $ .60 cash fare and a $22.00 
Fast Pass. He said he would not support elimination of a dis- 
count cash fare for students until a student pass has been 
introduced, distributed, and its effects tested. He suggested 
that this Commission recommend to the 3oard of Supervisors that 
the Board through the Department of Social Services generate 
the funds to discount Fast Passes to groups that they consider 
needy, in terms of income. 

Commissioner Hsieh said he believed the senior fare should not 

be increased. He proposed a $20.00 Fast Pass, $ .05 senior fare 

and $ .25 for students with a $5.00 student pass. In order to 

maintain the 33% recovery ratio, he proposed $ .75 peak fare 
and $ .50 off peak. 

Commissioner McCrea said that in his opinion a $ .75 peak fare 
with a $20.00 Fast Pass would not produce adequate farebox 
recovery because it would serve to increase Fast Pass sales. 
Any peak/non-peak fare structure would penalize those people 
who have to take transit to and from work. Furthermore, it 
would be in conflict with the assossmpnt district-., by ro^-ovor-i n ., 
costs from both the district and the rider. 



82-034 



Commissioner Sanger moved the following schedule, to be 
effective April 1, 1982s Adult cash fare $ .60; Adult Fast 
Pass $22.00; Discount cash fare for senior citizens, handi- 
capped and students $ .25; Discount Pass for senior citizens, 
handicapped and students $5.00 with the proviso that until 
the student pass is made available, the discount student cash 
fare shall be $ .10, but in no event will that continue later 
than October 1, 1982; Candlestick Park fares to be as staff 
has recommended, with the exception that the multi-ride ticket 
shall be priced at $2.50 per round trip. In addition, this 
Commission considers decisions regarding making available Fast 
Passes on a discount basis to low income categories to be a 
matter of Board policy. If the Board so desires, this Com- 
mission requests that they be provided not by increases in 
fares to other riders but through direct transfers by pur- 
chases of Fast Passes by the appropriate agencies and resale 
on a discount basis to those determined to need them. Com- 
missioner McCrsa seconded. 

Mr. Sklar stated the staff estimates this proposal will leave 
us $1 million short in the second year. 

Commissioner Hsieh requested that the motion be amended to 
increase the Fast Pass by $2.00 and retain the $ .05 senior 
fare. No amendment was made. 

On the question, Commissioners Flynn, ricCrea and Sanger voted 
"aye". Commissioner Hsieh voted no ! . 

Commissioner T lcCrea requested that staff draft a fare resolution 
in accordance with the fare schedule adopted by the Commission 
and submit it to the Commission for review of the language at 
the next meeting, February 9, 1982. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to establish a student summer pass 
valid during the months of June, July, August and September 
at a cost of $20.00. Commissioner UcCrea seconded. The motion 
was unanimously approved. 

President Flynn directed that staff move expeditiously to put 
the student pass in place.

Lenvin, Commissioners Peter McCrea, John Sanger, 
Thomas Hsieh 

A tape of the meeting is on file in the office of the Secretary 
of the Public Utilities Commission. 

Public Hearing 

To consider budget proposals for Fiscal Year 1982-83 for all 
departments and bureaus under the jurisdiction of the Public 
Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, presented an 
overview of the proposed budget. Scheduled for this meeting 
are the budgets for the San Francisco Water Department, Hetch 
Hetchy Water and Power and all of the bureaus. 

iJater Department 

Mr. Eugene Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, requested elimination of $530,000 
from the capital improvements budget for standby power for 
San Andreas filtration plant and an addition of $50,000 for 
the installation of gate valves, for a net decrease of 
$480,000. 

Mr. Moran said that in the course of reducing the budgets for 
the bureaus, the PUC allocation for the Water Department has 
been adjusted to $4,556,111. 

Commissioner Sanger moved and Commissioner Hsich seconded, 
approval of the iJater Department budget. It was unanimously 
approved. 

Hetch Hetchy 

Mr. Moran adjusted the amount of the PUC allocation to 
$4,768,545. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Jater and Power, 
described in detail the new programs proposed in the budget. 

Mr. Coffey said that there is a request in this budget for 
$1.2 million to undertake an environmental review of all of 
the projects recommended in the "Hetch Hetchy Water and Power 
Watershed Firm Yield Study" by Sverdrup & Parcel and Associates, 
Inc., consultants. 

Commissioner tlcCrea moved, Commissioner Hsieh seconded, to 
amend the Hetch Hetchy Water and Power capital improvement 
program to include this environmental review project and to 
distribute the cost over a two year .period. The motion was 
unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded approval 
of the Hetch Hetchy uudgot, as amended. Tiie motion was 
unanimously adopted. 



82-045 



Commissioner Sanger complimented Anson Moran and his staff for 
their work on the revised format of the budget. President Flynn 
added his compliments and thanks for a well organized budget 
document. 

Bureau of Administration 

Mr. Norman Rolfe questioned if the shift of funds to pay 
judgments and claims from the Bureau of Administration's budget 
to the Municipal Railway would increase Muni's A3-1107 require- 
ment. Commissioner McCrea replied "no." 

Mr. Douglas bright, Assistant General Manager, Administration, 
PUC, stated that he is in the process of reorganizing the bureau. 
This will not affect budget totals, but it will require a change 
in the format. Management Training will be assigned to the 
Bureau of Performance Monitoring. 

Commissioner Lenvin expressed concern about the priority the 
Elderly and Handicapped Program will receive under the re- 
organization. She suggested that it be set apart from the 
other auxiliary services under the Director of Special Projects. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that the division of Legal Services 
be expanded to include general litigation and the title changed 
to Claims and Legal Services Management. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he would like to see Muni Planning 
become PUC Planning and Management of Environmental Studies in 
the future . 

Mr. Uright explained the request for $100,000 for a real estate 
industrial site study. Commissioner McCrea said that he is of 
the opinion that the City's real estate holdings should be 
limited to those that have operational use for the department. 
If the land is surplus to the department's needs it should be 
sold. Commissioner Sanger suggested reprogramming this money 
to be used to hire a consultant to evaluate all PUC properties 
as to their value to the department and best use. This was 
approved by common consent. 

Bureau of Financial Management 

Mr. Moran presented the new programs in the Bureau of Financial 
Management. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that staff add two analytical 
positions to the budget, delete contractual services and re- 
submit the justification to the Commission at the last budget 
session. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, PUC, explained the new positions requested in the 
Bureau of Management Information Systems. Seven new positions 
will be needed for the last three months of the fiscal year when 
the department takes over management of the bureau from the 
consultant. Four junior level programmers are needed to 
document and maintain current programs. 



G2-040 



Bureau of -nercy Conservation

said that the M/or's Unergy advisory Coi.mittae has recor.uaendeu 
that the ^arsau Lecoitie the lead agency in overseeing its 
reconiirianJationrj for tiie private community. For that reason a

PUBLIC HEARING 

To consider budget proposals for Fiscal Year 1982-83 for all 
departments and bureaus under the jurisdiction of the Public 
Utilities Commission. 

Bureau of Light, Heat and Power 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, stated that the 
proposed budget for the Bureau of Light, Heat and Power is a 
continuation of the current year's budget. There is a sub- 
stantial increase in the dollar amount due to the increase 
in power costs. Accounting procedures have been changed 
for City departments. Instead of charging the City's 
general fund, where possible power costs are being work- 
ordered from the department through the bureau to provide 
more accountability. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned line item "469 Equity Transfer" 
in the Hetch Hetchy budget. Mr. Moran replied that all City 
departments were to be raised to full market rates with the 
increased amount passing to the general fund through the 
equity transfer. Mr. Sklar stated that in accordance with 
the wishes of the Mayor's Office, all City departments, 
except those which are public service enterprises, will be 
charged the discount rate. 

President Flynn said that last year after being advised 
that the school districts could not pay market rate for power 
because the amount had not been budgeted, this Commission 
agreed to continue the discount for this year only. There- 
after, the school districts would be charged market rates. 
He questioned whether rates for City departments are under 
the Commission's jurisdiction or the Mayor's Office. 

Ms. Smith, Secretary, said that the Commission sets the rates 
for power furnished to City departments at the time it 
adopts rates for Hetch Hetchy power furnished to other 
consumers. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned t-he implication theoo rat-PS 
may have on the Airport litigation caco and requested an 
executive session with legal counsel before approving the 
budget. 



82-049 



.. n-.'i • X' 



Mr. Moran stated that one-half of the cost of energy audits 
that are budgeted in the Bureau of Energy Conservation are 
funded through the Bureau of Light, Heat and Power because 
they are gas related and, therefore, cannot be funded by 
Hetch Hetchy. 

Commissioner McCrea moved and Commissioner Hsieh seconded 
adoption of the Bureau of Light, Heat and Power budget. 
Commissioners Flynn and Lenvin voted "aye". Commissioner 
Sanger voted"no". 

Municipal Railway 

Mr. Moran said that the level of general fund support is the 
same as this year, adjusted to include salary standardization. 
All new programs will be presented today, with the exception 
of the "July 1st Adjustment" and the Equipment Maintenance 
budget. Mr. Sklar defined the "July 1st Adjustment" as an 
annualization of projected July 1st actual expenditures which 
are not identified in the current year's budget. 

Mr. Moran explained that under the 13c agreement with the 
federal government, the City has agreed that as a result of 
receiving federal grant funds existing employees will not 
suffer economically. Applying this to the cable car shutdown 
the department has identified its maximum liability, subtracted 
the number of employees that can be reassigned to new programs 
leaving a remaining liability of $1,485,100. This assumes 
job placement within six months. Platform personnel are 
not included because they will be reassigned to other vehicle 
modes. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he is opposed to abandonment 
of Line 7-HAIGHT when weekend LRV service begins. He suggested 
shortlining the No. 7 at Market Street. Commissioner Lenvin 
opposed elimination of surface transportation and interim 
stops between Muni Metro stations by abandonment of Line 
8 -MARKET. 

Commissioner McCrea directed that staff reduce service by 
no more than $200,000 to offset weekend LRV service and 
resubmit the revised plan to the Commission. 

Ms. Barbara Brown of Field Support described the Joint Labor/ 
Management Board which will work on resolving problems from 
the divisional level to top management. Some of the areas 
on which the JLMB will focus are safety, operator health 
and moral. 

Mr. Paul Bellazain, President, Transport Workers Union, 
Local 250-A, supported this opportunity for the union to 
establish a working relationship with management. 

Mr. Dick Sinigiani of Operations presented the overtime needs 
for implementation of central traffic control training. 
Ms. Diane Nygaard of Operations Training presented a 
request for three temporary instructors to conduct training 
for non-platform operations personnel. 



82-050 



Commissioner McCrea requested that these two programs be 
consolidated. 

Mr. Ed Pearson described five programs which are budgeted 

under Cable Car 18 Months Assignment. Employees displaced 

by the cable car shutdown will be utilized for these programs. 

Commissioner McCrea said that one time or periodic programs 
should be identified as such, with the notation that they 
will become contractual services in the future. Ongoing 
programs should be justified now because permanent positions 
will be required when cable car service is reinstituted 
after the rehabilitation period. 

Commissioner Hsieh requested that two positions be reallocated 
from Metro Subway Structural and Environmental Betterments 
to Gardening. 

President Flynn announced that the last session of this 
public hearing on the budget has been rescheduled to 
Thursday, February 25, 1982, at .10:30. A.M.

Resolution No. 82-0082 - Approving budget for Fiscal Year 
1982-83 for all departments" and bureaus under the jurisdiction 
of the Public Utilities Commission. 



PUBLIC HEARING 

To consider budget proposals for Fiscal Year 1982-83 for all 
departments and bureaus under the jurisdiction of the Public 
Utilities Commission. 

Hunicipal Railway - Equipment naintenance 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, stated that the 
continuing budget for materials and supplies includes an 
additional $500,000 each f^r both LRV and diesel parts, based 
upon the current level of expenditure. 

ns. Ann Branston, Manager Performance Monitoring, presented 
an overview of the Equipment Maintenance budget. Mr. John 
Mullane, Director of Maintenance Administration, Finance, 
explained the budget program titled Supervisory and Managerial 
Class Consolidation. This would allow consolidation of 21 
classifications, from both the electrical and automotive 
classes, into a single series containing 5 classes. Salaries 
between levels would be adjusted to provide an adequate differ- 
ential between each supervisory level. 

Mr. Frank Baggetta, Deputy General Manager, Equipment Mainten- 
ance, explained the need for two new programs, Additional 
Maintenance Supervision and Technical Maintenance Training. 
The training program wculd allow the development of an 
apprenticeship program, the use of existing courses, such as 
those conducted by General Motors and the development of an 
in-house electrical program. Santa Clara Transit is developing 
an automotive training course. Funds are included in contractual 
services to enroll our employees in that course. 

Mr. Richard Rogers, Electrical Transit Superintendent, Muni 
Railway, described five projects under the Trolley Coach 
Maintenance Improvement Program covering traction motors, door 
engines, door panel replacement, power steering and turn signal 
modification. 

Mr. Baggetta said that a capital grant program to replace all 
plastic windows is being planned. 



82-058 



Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP /Trans asked about the cost 
of Lexan replacement for vandalism versus safety plate windows. 
Mr. Rogers said that in six years of trolley operation 
approximately 20 Lexan windows have been replaced, whereas 
when glass windows were being used the shop replaced 5 to 10 
per day. 

Mr. Rogers presented a request for $398,243 for a LRV 
Modification Program. Commissioner Hsieh requested that staff 
determine if the circulation of unfiltered air resulting from 
the proposed modification will create a new problem. 
Commissioner Lenvin asked staff to review door failures. 

Mr. Klebolt said that as an LRV operator he experiences 
problems closing doors on a grade. 

********** 

Mr. Moran presented revised documentation for items continued 
from the previous budget sessions: PUC Financial Analysis, 
Energy Conservation and the Municipal Railway July 1st Adjust- 
ment* 

Commissioner McCrea said that the July 1st Adjustment should 
be highlighted in the continuing budget because it is not a new 
program. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that staff more clearly define 
"new programs' 1 throughout the entire budget and that new 
positions needed for LRV weekend service be justified in terms 
of the overall expenditure on the LRV system. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner McCrea seconded, 
approval of the budgets for all PUC bureaus. The budgets were 
adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved. Commissioner Hsieh seconded, 

approval of the Municipal Railway budget. The budget was adopted.

on which cable cars presently operate will be closed to traffic 
with the exception of California Street. Therefore, substitute 
motor coaches will have to operate on other streets. Staff 
proposes doubling service on line 83-Pacific and extending it 
to the Trans-Bay Terminal, adding service on the 30-Stockton, 
and providing north/south service on a new line tf58-Leavenworth 
from either 5th and Market or Union Square to Columbus Avenue 
and Bay Street with possible extension to Victoria Square. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the extension of line 83-Pacific 
crccsing Market Street at a point that does not connect with 
either the Embarcadero or Montgomery Street Stations. 

Ms. Victoria Kelvin, President, Russian Hill Forum, opposed 
rerouting buses onto Larkin Street. She submitted a petition 
to the Commission opposing the plan. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP /Trans, suggested that the 
Commission tour the area before acting on this proposal. 



82-064 



Mr. Norman Rolfe, a resident of the area, said he didn't want 
the cable car alternative routes to become permanent. The 
staff proposal is probably the best that could be done due to 
the steepness of the hills in the area. 

Commissioner Hsieh suggested that the 83-Pacific be extended 

to Battery Street to connect with lines 41-Union and 42-Downtown 

Loop. 

Ms. Sue Lee, representing Chinatown TRIP opposed the extension 
of the 83-Pacific to the Trans-Bay Terminal. She supported its 
extension to Battery Street. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that this matter be continued to 
the next meeting for discussion of the construction plan and 
possible alternatives to it as well as bus rerouting. 

Commissioner Hsieh requested that staff prepare another alter- 
native extending the 83-Pacific to loop at San some and Battery 
Streets . 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0094 — Authorizing lease to Boyd M. Olney, 
Jr., d.b.a. Four Bar Cattle Company, at an annual rental of 
$51,000 per year. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that the late charge be raised 
from $50.00 to $150.00 and the interest rate increased to 16% 
from 12%. Regarding the cancellation provisions, she requested 
that language be included to assure that lessee pays rent 
during harvest period. Under the section "Operation of Premises" 
concerning rental credit for costs of repairs. Commissioner 
Sanger requested that the credit be limited to $10,000 for the 
term of the lease. Commissioner Lenvin said that repairs should 
be made prior to giving rental credit and that the rental rate 
should be prorated over the life of the lease. 

With the foregoing amendments , the lease was approved .

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Tuolumne River Projects 

Mr. Sklar announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 
has issued a preliminary permit for the South Fork Tuolumne Project 
This does not commit the Commission to this project. It is the 
staff's intent to have an environmental impact report/environmental 
impact statement (EIR/EIS) prepared which will totally evaluate 
any actions we may take along the Tuolumne River. All projects 
identified in the report by Sverdrup & Parcel and Associates, Inc. 
and any other that may emerge will be evaluated. Staff recommends 
that the Policy Board and the Technical Advisory Committee for 
the EIR/EIS include not only staff members but people from all 



82-073 



interested areas. Staff also recommends that the EIR/EIS be 
conducted entirely by the Commission, not as a joint project 
with the Modesto and Turlock Irrigation Districts. Any decisions 
regarding the Districts' participation in specific projects should 
be made at the time the Commission decides to go forward with a 
specific project. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that the Commission will define the 
scope of work for the EIR/EIS, and any changes in that scope. 
This position should be related to the Controller of the budget. 
Mr. Sklar said that a Commissioner should Chair the Policy Board 
and Technical Advisory Committee. Commissioner Sanger expressed 
the opinion that the Commission's control over the budget and 
scope of work cannot be delegated to a committee composed of 
non-Commission members. 

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS 3Y COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Sanger reported on a recent meeting of the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission's AB-842 Committee. He said pursuant 
to his recommendation last year, MTC has agreed to accelerate 
to the month of April its allocation of funds to each operator. 
Thus, when the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors adopt the 
Municipal Railway budget they can be certain of the funds 
expected from MTC. 

It has been the MTC's policy to allocate operating assistance 
based upon a "coordinated fare system." Their staff is recommen- 
ding under the "coordinated fare system" that fares be presumed 
on a basis of a 75% discount for senior citizens, youth and 
handicapped persons, and a uniform pass equivalency of 40 rides 
per month. Due to the fare structure adopted by the Board of 
Supervisors, Muni's fare revenues will be approximately $2.5 
million less than presumed by MTC. The net effect will be a 
reduction in operating assistance. Had we known of these 
standards before the fare increase was adopted, we could have 
informed the Board of Supervisors of the consequences of their 
action. Commissioner Sanger requested that the President 
of the Commission inform the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors 
by letter of the impact of continuing the 5£ fare on Muni's 
budget. 

************* 

President Flynn announced the adoption of Resolution No. 82-0095 
in Executive Session on March 12, 1982, authorizing staff to 
enter into settlement negotiations in the case of the City of 
Palo Alto vs. City and County of San Francisco ; and directing 
staff to proceed to develop alternative Water Department rate 
structures for water service within the limits of the City and 
County of San Francisco. 

************* 
Resolution No. 82-0096 — Public Hearing to consider a grant 
application under Section 5 of the Urban Mass Transportation Act 
of 1964, as amended. 

A transcript of this hearing is on file in the office of the 
Secretary of the Public Utilities Commission. 



82-074 



Mr. Louis Tucciarone, of the Bureau of Financial Management, made 
the staff presentation. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments; hearing 
none, the public hearing was closed. 

Commissioner Sanger amended the resolution to increase the 
amount to $23.8 million, from $21.3 million. Commissioner Lenvin 
seconded. The amendment passed by common consent. Commissioner 
Lenvin moved adoption of the resolution as amended. Commissioner 
Hsieh seconded. Resolution No. 82-0096 was adopted. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0110 — Approving the' employment of Touche Ross 
by the City Attorney as part of the preparation for litigation 
of the City of Palo Alto v. City and County of San Francisco . 

This item was introduced off calendar and approved by the Commission, 

************* 

Item No. 12 — Presentation of anticipated construction activities, 
schedule and impacts relating to the Cable Car Rehabilitation 
Program. 

Mr. Lynn Pio, Project Manager, presented an overview of the work 
to be done during cable car track replacement and the coordination 
between the various utilities involved. 

Mr. Clay Baldwin of O'Brien Kreitzberg and Associates, consultants, 
gave details on measures being taken to meet the 20 month 
construction timetable, including dividing the project into six 
separate contracts. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0113 -- Authorizing alternative motor coach 
service during the cable car shutdown period. 

Ms. Susan Chelone of Transit Planning, presented proposed bus 
routes using a grade map to shew the blocks that can and cannot 
be ascended by diesel buses. 

A man in the audience spoke in opposition to operating a bus on 
Larkin Street. A petition was submitted to the Commission. 
President Flynn noted that some of the signatures were those of 
people not living in San Francisco. 

Commissioner Lenvin expressed concern about the number of elderly 
people living on Russian Hill who would be walking an additional 
block, uphill, if the substitute route is placed on Polk Street 
rather than Larkin Street. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President CAP/Trans, said that this route 
change is for a short period of time. Other neighborhoods will be 
inconvenienced much more than the people on Larkin Street. 



12-075 



Commissioner Sanger moved approval of the staff recommendation 
with the following exceptions: (1) that the northbound route 
be on Larkin Street from Vallejo to Francisco Street; (2) that 
no service operate on California Street, if staff feels service 
on California Street is desirable, the matter should be 
resubmitted to the Commission; and (3) service on Line 83-Pacific 
shall be extended to Battery Street. At the request of staff 
a resolve clause not to operate the peak hour extension of the 
25-San Bruno was incorporated in the resolution. Commissioner 
Lenvin seconded. 

************* 

Item No. 14 — Regarding Muni Metro Station Agent Requirements. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that staff consult with the Bay 
Area Rapid Transit District (BARTD) to coordinate manning of 
station areas. 

Commissioner Hsieh was excused at 4:35 P.M. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0115 — Authorizing a study on Municipal 
Railway data collection. 

President Flynn questioned the need for this study and asked 
how many people this study will relieve to do other work. 
Commissioner Sanger said that the study will develop a 
statistical sampling plan. Current personnel will then collect 
data in accordance with the plan. 

************* 
INTRODUCTION OF BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

President Flynn inquired about the status of developing a student 
pass. Mr. Bruce Bernhard, Manager of the Analysis Unit, Finance 
Bureau, reported that he is still negotiating with the Board of 
Education's staff. In reply to a question by Commissioner 
Sanger, Mr. Bernhard said that at present he does not contemplate 
selling student passes through Fast Pass vendors because there is 
no way to assure that an individual is under 18 years of age. 
Most young people do not have non-transferable identification. 

President Flynn requested that staff move expeditiously to 
implement a student pass and keep the Commission informed of 
their progress.

Copies of the above resolutions are on file in the

Commission. 

************* 
Report of the General Manager 

Mr. Sklar reported that staff has discussed with the Port Commission 
the use of Pier 70 for storage of cable cars, during the rehabilitation 
period, and diesel coaches to ease congestion at Woods Division. 
The Port Commission has requested a "hold harmless agreement" from 
this Commission. 

82-082 



Commissioner Hsieh moved, Commissioner Sanger seconded, adoption 
of Resolution No. 82-0126, to hold the Port Commission harmless. 

Item No. 17--Regarding Transit Impact Development Fee Regulations. 
(This item was taken out of order.) 

Mr. Bruce Bernhard, Manager of the Analysis Unit, said that two 
resolutions are presented for consideration — the first would 
adopt regulations and the second would request the Board of 
Supervisors to enact an ordinance exempting certain properties. 

Commissioner McCrea was concerned that interested members of the 
public had not had adequate time to review the proposed regulations 
or received notice that this would be considered by the Commission 
today. 

Mr. Gerven Peck of Morrison and Foerster, Attorneys at Law, 
representing Four Embarcadero Center Venture, said that he had 
no problem with the regulations as doing a job of exemption, 
except that he assumed it would have to go before the Board of 
Supervisors for final action. 

Mr. Tom Klitgaard of Pillsbury, Madison and Sutro, Attorneys 
at Law, representing the Russ Building Partnership, said they 
were concerned about regulations being adopted at this time 
because they didn't feel the proposed regulations are broad 
enough to cover all buildings that were underway when the ordinance 
was passed. 

President Flynn said that the Commission would meet in Executive 
Session with its counsel immediately following this meeting to 
discuss the proposed regulations. Consideration for adoption 
would be deferred to a subsequent meeting. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar introduced a proposed resolution approving a personal 
services contract with Dennis A. Joiner and Associates for develop- 
ment of Assessment Centers for maintenance supervisors. Resolution 
No. 82-0127 was adopted. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar distributed a critical path chart of the Diesel Fleet 
Replacement Program Pre-bid Schedule and a listing of standard 
coach manufacturers' delivery times. A public hearing on the 
grant application to acquire the funding for the purchase of 
210 new vehicles has been scheduled for May 25, 1982. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0128 -- Adopting a revised schedule of rates 
for furnishing Hetch Hetchy power. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the lateness of this proposal to 
adjust rates to changes authorized by the California Public 
Utilities Commission in May, June and July of 1981. Mr. Ted 
Chung, Senior Electrical Engineer, replied that the net effect 
of those changes was only a 10 percent increase for fuel cost 
adjustment. The January 1, 1982 general increase is 65 percent. 
Staff combined all four rate changes into this proposal. 



82-083 



President Flynn directed that staff present all rate changes 
authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to 
this Commission for consideration as soon as possible, with the 
exception of those times when staff is aware that a subsequent 
revision is due to be enacted by the CPUC within a few weeks 
time. In those cases the net effect is to be presented to 
this Commission. 

The meeting was opened to the public. 

Mr. Lendwood Hamel, representing the San Francisco Unified School 
District, requested that the Commission continue the discount 
rate for the School District. 

In reply to a question from President Flynn, Mr. Sklar said that 
all municipal departments will be charged the discount rate. 
There is a question of whether or not the School District and 
Community College are municipal departments. The only City 
departments recommended for market rates are the San Francisco 
Water Department, the Clean Water Program, and the San Francisco 
International Airport, for its own use. Resolution No. 82-0128 
was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner McCrea moved that the Commission conduct another 
public hearing to consider adoption of a rate schedule which would 
establish market rates for all customers, except where prevented 
by litigation or contract. Commissioner Sanger seconded. The 
motion was unanimously adopted. 

************ 

Resolution No. 82-0140 — Instructing the consultant designing 
the Cable Car Barn to cease design work on the alternative which 
would provide mezzanine storage space for cable cars. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe of San Francisco Tomorrow, urged the Commission 
to complete the design with the mezzanine and include it as an 
alternate scheme in the bid process. 

Mr. Oral Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
replied that the design with the mezzanine is entirely different 
from the proposed design without mezzanine storage. The 
difference is due to the transfer of certain maintenance functions 
to other facilities, thus allowing greater storage space without 
the use of a mezzanine level. Approval is requested now because 
the barn design will affect the street design. 

Commissioner McCrea said that this is not a cable car expansion 
project, it is rebuilding the existing system.

*************** 

Resolution No. 82-0147 — Adopting regulations for implementing 
the Transit Impact Development Fee Ordinance. 

Mr. Burk Delventhal, Deputy City Attorney, said that at the Commission 
meeting of April 13, 1982, Mr. Thomas Klitgaard of Pillsbury, 
Madison and Sutro, Attorneys at Law, raised a question regarding 
"in line" projects. We have studied his objections and feel that 
the regulations, as proposed, draw the line between those 
projects that have vested rights and those that don't. 

In response to another objection by Mr. Klitgaard, we recommend 
including Section 7.3, which restates a portion of the ordinance, 
to provide a credit against the development fee in the event the 
City imposes and collects an additional fee or assessment 
specifically to recover the costs of transit services. Also, 
the eligibility date under Section 4. c. should be amended so 
that the fee becomes due immediately prior to issuance of a 
certificate of final completion. 



82-086 



Commissioner Sanger questioned the definition of "office use." 
He proposed amending Section 2.1.b. to read "Occupancy of a 
portion of a building or structure for the purposes and 
activities defined in Section 2.1. a. of these regulations 
shall be deemed office use even if it is not the predominant 
use in the building or structure provided that the portion 
thereof so occupied clearly defies separate occupancy for 
such use or, if separately so occupied as may be evidenced by 
separation of tenancy, address , or access, or other condition 
as may be appropriate." 

Mr. Delventhal recommended amending the next sentence of the 
draft to read, "Office use does not include space devoted to 
the management/administration of the following non-office 
uses located in the same structure, building or portion 
thereof " 

Commissioner Lenvin said if counsel should find there is a 
language problem the Commission is to be advised and another 
meeting convened. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, 
approval of the foregoing amendment. The motion was 
unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved amendment of Section 2.3 to read, 
"Gross square feet of office use shall be defined as the total 
square feet of space or gross floor area in a building or 
within a structure devoted to office use as specified in 
these regulations including any common areas exclusively 
serving office use and not serving any other use (such as 
retail, manufacturing, etc.)." Commissioner Hsieh seconded. 
The motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved approval of the regulations, as 
amended, Commissioner Lenvin seconded. 

Commissioner Hsieh questioned whether the amount of $19,000 
was sufficient to cover costs that would be incurred by the 
Bureau of Building Inspection in providing the information 
necessary to implement the development fee. Mr. McChoy Choy, 
Deputy Superintendent, Bureau of Building Inspection, stated 
that $19,000 is a minimum estimate and is subject to increase 
as the project goes along. In reply to a question by 
President Flynn, Mr. Choy placed the maximum cost at $50,000. 

Resolution No. 82-0147 was unanimously adopted. 



Thereupon the meeting was adjourned: 9:50 A.M.

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Hsieh requested a report from staff regarding the 
Municipal Railway's procedures for handling complaints by the 
public of driver rudeness. 

****** 

Item No. 19 — Regarding conceptual design for the Geneva Carbarn 
Site. (This item was taken out of order) . 

Mr. Werner Siemens, consultant, presented conceptual drawings of 
the proposed buildings. Commissioner Hsieh was of the opinion 
that the mixing of the old with tne new in terms of materials and 
design would produce an awkward appearance. He requested that the 
consultant develop other proposals. Commissioner Sanger requested 
that at least informal consultations take place with the Landmarks 
Advisory Board and the Foundation for San Francisco's Architectural 
Heritage and that the Commission be advised of the outcome. 



Resolution No. 82-0166 — Authorizing a 3.2 acre lease to Quantic 
Industries, Inc. 

Commissioner Lenvin pointed out that the lease provides the option 
of extension after three years and adjusting the rental by either 
an increase or decrease. She said that as a matter of policy the 
Commission should not exercise the option of extending a lease 
for less rent than the original amount. She moved to amend the 
lease to delete the words "or decrease". Commissioner Sanger 
seconded. The lease was approved, as amended. 

****** 

Item No. 15 — 90-Day Proqress Report on the Paratransit Taxi 
Program. 

Mr. Tom Jordan, Director of Special Projects, reported on the 
program to date and provided statistical data on usage. In response 
to a question by Commissioner Lenvin as to the number of rides per 
client, Mr. Jordan said that the amount of scrip purchased does not 
indicate the number of trips taken because the cost is based upon 

82-094 



distance traveled. He said that early in the program staff 
identified a problem of some low income clients, especially 
those in the southeastern portion of the City, not being able 
to afford the 10% cost of a $15.00 trip. To address this, 
staff applied for and received a $3,000.00 grant from the 
Corporations and Foundations Emergency Fund to cover the costs 
of scrip for those individuals.

Resolution No. 82-0167 — Authorizing extension of line 17- 
Parkmerced to serve Buckingham Way. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, stated that following 
the Phase 2 rerouting of Municipal Railway bus lines many 
letters of complaint were received requesting restoration of 
service on Buckingham Way. Staff conducted a community meeting 
on April 14, 19 82 and as a result recommends rerouting of 
line 17-Parkmerced to serve Buckingham Way. Also, staff 
recommends deleting weekend service on Junipero Serra Boulevard 
due to lack of patronage. 

Mrs. Ida Mae Brewster, a resident of 20th Avenue, said that the 
staff recommendation is acceptable to residents of the area. 



Resolution No. 82-0169 -- Bid call on MR 815, Handicapped Loading 
Platforms . 

Mr. Sklar said that loading platforms will not be installed at 
Balboa Park due to a plan to change the routing of the K and M 
Metro lines. Staff plans to go ahead with the platforms as 
proposed at Wawona Station. In response to a question by 
President Flynn, Mr. Sklar said staff would come back to the 
Commission for approval of a second location. 

President Flynn requested that a discussion of the design for 
handicapped loading platforms be calendared for the next meeting.

Resolution No. 32-0170 — Awarding WD 1836.

Resolution No. 82-0171 — Requesting a supplemental appropriation 
in the amount of $4,406,600 for construction of a pump station at 
Cherry-Eleanor Tunnel. 

Mr. Alvin J. Greenberg, Chairman, Water Resources Committee, 
Sierra Club, spoke in opposition to the project based upon the 
preliminary negative declaration issued April 16, 19 82 by the 
Department of City Planning which placed the project inside 
Yosemite National Park on the Lake Eleanor end of the tunnel. 
Mr. Oral L. Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC, 
stated that City Planning 1 s description of the project is in error. 
It was never the intention of staff to place a pump station in 
Yosemite. The project was always planned for the Cherry end of 
the tunnel. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner Hsieh seconded, a motion 
to inform the Department of City Planning that the project des- 
cription in the negative declaration should be revised in 
accordance with the actual project being proposed. The motion 
was adopted. 

****** 

Resolution No. 82-0172 — Awarding HH677R, No. 24 Divisadero 
Electrification Project, Jackson Street to 26th Street Trolley 
Overhead Construction to Abbett Electric Company, San Francisco. 

Mr. Sklar said that the time constraints on this contract are 
crucial to our ability to fund the project. The City will do 
everything on its part to see that the City does not contribute 
to a delay. We must rely upon the contractor, its subcontractors 
and suppliers to insure that the project is completed on time. 
Mr. Conrad Abbett said that his firm bid the job to be in strict 
accordance with the plans and specifications and to complete it 
as per the requirements. The manufacturers have assured us they 
will deliver materials on time. 

****** 

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar reported that he had received a request from the 
California Department of Transportation to endorse a demonstration 
project to run 3 trains morning and evening to the Ferry Building 
as an extension of service to downtown. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he is of the opinion that it is ill 
advised to proceed to the Ferry Building eitner as a short term or 
a long term proposal. It is inconsistent with our plans for the 
Municipal Railway's Embarcadero rail line in essentially the same 
right of v/ay . 

It was agreed that the Commission take no position on the proposal 
at this time. However, the General Manager will communicate the 
Commission's concerns regarding protection of the right of way for 
future Municipal Railway use. 

******* 



82-096 



Mr. Douglas G. Wright, Assistant General Manager, Administrative, 
requested permission to make an exception to the Commission's 
policy and renegotiate leases with Sunol Nursery and Rob Johnson. 
It was agreed that staff could negotiate with the current tenants 
as long as staff was aware of the fair market value of the property, 

Mr. Wright advised that staff intends to revoke the permit of 
Treasure Island Trailer Court because the permittee is replacing 
"trailer homes" with "mobile homes", which are semi -permanent 
structures.

**** ********* 

PUBLIC HEARING — To consider a revised schedule of rates to be 
charged for furnishing Hetch Hetchy electric power to private 
consumers and municipal departments, without discount. 

Ms. Rosario Anaya, President of the Board of Education, spoke in 
favor of continuing the discount for the school district. 
She said that the school district is facing a shortfall in 
next year's budget. The proposed increase in electric rates is 
equivalent to 64 teachers. Due to the 1979 Gann Initiative, 
if the rates are increased it would have a negative effect on 
the City's budget by increasing the general fund contribution to 
the school district and reducing the amount that can be raised 
through taxes. 

In response to a question by Commissioner Sanger, Mr. Robert Brooks, 
the district's Energy Coordinator, was introduced and commented 
on the district's conservation program. Commissioner Sanger 
said that there is the possibility of having funds made 
available from Hetch Hetchy Water and Power to fund accelerated 
capital improvements necessary to achieve substantial energy 
conservation. 

Mr. Hilary Hsu, Chancellor for the San Francisco Community 
College District, said that his staff will work with the 
Commission's Bureau of Energy Conservation to reduce the 
district's consumption. 



82-103 



Mr. Charles Collins, Director of Facilities for the Community 
College District, said that the district has hired a consultant 
to develop an energy conservation program and is in the process 
of implementing that program. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans supported continuation 
of the discount for City Departments, especially the Municipal 
Railway. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren, Chair of the San Francisco College 
Emergency Educational Program, said that if the college loses 
its discount it will be forced to charge to educate the City's 
paramedical workers. 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner Hsieh, 
the Commission unanimously approved authorizing the General Manager 
of Public Utilities to negotiate contracts with the San Francisco 
Unified School District and the Community College District for 
undertaking energy conservation programs by said Districts. 

On motion of Commissioner McCrea, seconded by Commissioner 
Lenvin, Resolution No. 82-0174-A was adopted, directing staff to 
review all municipal departments to ensure that all separately 
metered activities that receive revenues from sources other than 
the general fund will be charged electric rates without discount. 
The next rate revision submitted to the Commission shall include 
the aforesaid reclassification of municipal activities. 

Resolution No. 82-0174, adopting rate schedules comparable to 
those authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission 
through February 18, 1982 was approved, with discounts to various 
municipal departments. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0187 — Rejecting all bids on Water Department 
Contract No. 1835. 

Mr. George Newkirk, Director of MBE/Contract Compliance, reported 
that the low bidder, W. J. Gaffney, Inc., states in his bid 
that his firm will do all of the work and will not require a 
subcontractor. However, staff has found that Gaffney used a 
subcontractor on another contract which was bid the same way. 
He said counsel advises that the Commission can either award 
this contract to Gaffney or reject all bids. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner McCrea seconded, to 
reject all bids and authorize readvertisement . Resolution 
No. 82-0187 was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner McCrea requested that staff take whatever actions 
may be necessary concerning possible violation of the current 
contract. 

************** 

Item No. 8 — Regarding the San Francisco Municipal Railway 
5-Year Plan 1982-87. 

This matter was continued to the meeting of May 25, 1982. 
Commissioner McCrea moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to 
schedule the May 25, 1982 regular meeting of the Commission 
for 1:00 P.M. The motion was adopted. 



82-104 



Item No. 14 -- Discussion of design for handicapped loading 
platforms. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Projects, presented 
drawings of the proposed loading platform to be installed at the 
end of the L-Taraval line. He said other sides under consideration 
by staff for handicapped access are the end of the N-Judah line 
and the stop at San Francisco State University. Staff is also 
looking at an elevator device for the San Francisco State 
University site. 

Commissioner McCrea moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, approval 
of the plan as presented. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0188 — Rejecting all bids on Water Department 
Contract No. 1839. 

Mr. George Newkirk stated that the low bidder, Stacy and Witbeck, 
Inc. , indicated in its bid that no subcontractors would be 
used. He listed certain materials that he would be purchasing 
but made no attempt to contact minority owned suppliers for 
those materials. The bid does not indicate any Minority 
Business Enterprise (MBE) participation in the contract. Now, 
the firm says minority and women owned truckers will be used, 
but they were not listed in the bid. 

Commissioner Hsieh questioned why only two bids were received 
on a contract of almost $1 million. The second bid is almost 
15% over the engineer's estimate. 

Mr. Robert Fisher of Gaston L. Jones, Inc., said that his firm 

which has been a subcontractor on other jobs, would bid as the general 

contractor if the amount wasn't over their bonding capacity. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to reject all bids and authorize re- 
advertisement due to lack of sufficient competition in bidding. 
Commissioner Hsieh seconded. 

Mr. Donald Casper, attorney for Pacific Pavements Company, Ltd., 
the second low bidder, protested rejection of all bids. He stated 
that his firm has acted in good faith and has complied with the 
Commission's affirmative action and minority business enterprise 
goals. He said the contract should be awarded to his firm as the 
second low bidder. 

At 4:00 P.M. President Flynn was excused from the meeting. He 
returned at 4:05 P.M. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0190 — Authorizing acceptance of transfers 
on cable cars for passengers with a 30-ride ticket book. 

Ms. Jo Ivester of the Bureau of Financial Management, reported 
that during the month of March 1982, the first month 30-ride 
ticket books were available, only 100 ticket books were sold and 
500 tickets collected. This does not indicate fraud or abuse of 
the system. Staff will continue to monitor sales and usage. 



82-105 



Mr. Norman Rolfe of San Francisco Tomorrow, pointed out that 
if a resident used the last ticket in the book he/she would 
be charged an extra 40 cents. He suggested that transfers be 
accepted without an extra charge. 

On motion of Commissioner McCrea, seconded by Commissioner 
Lenvin, Resolution No. 82-0190 was adopted. Commissioners 
Flynn and Hsieh voted "aye", Commissioner Sanger voted "no". 

************* 

Mr. Sklar introduced a personal services contract with Mr. 
Dennis Joiner which will split a contract approved by the 
Commission last year due to a disagreement between the partners 
in the earlier contract. Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner 
Lenvin seconded approval of this personal services contract.

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Lenvin inquired about the method and type of signing 
used to direct intending cable car passengers to alternate 
service during periods of temporary shut down. Mr. Carl Barton, 
Acting Deputy General Manager, Operations, Municipal Railway, 
said that the procedure used by the department is to post signs 
on poles near cable car stops and to have Transit Line Coordinators 
drive along the route to inform intending passengers of alternate 
service. He said he would check to see that this is being done. 
Commissioner Lenvin asked that a more permanent sign be placed 
at each terminal, especially the Powell Street terminal. 



82-114 



Commissioner McCrea requested a status report at the next meeting 
on the development of a new Muni map. 

President Flynn directed that the Secretary to the Commission 
monitor staff's response to requests of the Commission. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0195 — Approving San Francisco Municipal Railway 
5-Year Plan, 1982-87. 

Commissioner McCrea requested modifications to the language 
contained in the Policies and Standards section. Regarding the 
proposed standard of 20-minute frequency for principal routes, 
he said that this is acceptable if runs are not being missed 
resulting in double headways, service is not being adjusted 
by shortlining thereby reducing service below the standard for 
a portion of the line, and runs are "cut" so that the 20 minute 
standard is always met. 

He requested the addition of language to the effect that owl 
service should maximize trolley and rail service at the expense 
of motor coach service. 

Regarding facilities, Commissioner Hsieh said that not enough 
is said about appraisal and reassessment of all PUC land and 
property. He said that should be addressed in this plan and 
goals and objectives established. Mr. Douglas G. Wright, 
Assistant General Manager, Administration, PUC, replied that 
this plan only covers the Municipal Railway. Staff and con- 
sultants are developing a comprehensive facilities plan. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the .5 load factor for owl service. 
Mr. Angelo Figone, Manager of Schedules, replied that current 
owl service meets this criterion. Commissioner Sanger suggested 
that a glossary be added. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that programs such as the Joint 
Labor-Management Board, and operator stress program be included 
in the standards. 

Regarding the Elderly and Handicapped Program, she said that 
platforming accessibility to the light rail vehicles, (LRVs) , 
should also be recognized. 

President Flynn asked how close are we to providing operator 
refresher retraining to all operators every three years. Mr. 
Figone replied that the program is underway now. 

Commissioner McCrea requested that the Commission receive copies 
of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's comments on 
this 5-Year Plan. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the projections used for transit 
growth. He said, he considers the Association of Bay Area 
Governments' projections wholly unreliable to project transit 
needs for travel to and from downtown San Francisco. If we base 
our needs on that we will be under transited in the future, just 
as we are now, because we used the same kinds of numbers in 
the past. 



82-115 



Mr. Sklar said that the plan must use base data approved by MTC , 
however, we can include a footnote stating that this is an agreed 
upon figure that we believe is too low for peak downtown growth 
over a five year period, and retain the appendices with our 
figures. 

Commissioner Hsieh questioned the use of 9% for inflation. Mr. 
Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial Management, 
said that the figure is 9% per year based upon the average of 
various indices. 

Mr. Jim Smith, an analyst for the Bureau of Finance, summarized 
the Municipal Railway Fleet Rehabilitation and Replacement Plan. 
He stated that MTC has requested that the Commission formally 
adopt the plan and amend the Municipal Railway 5-Year Plan, 
1981-86 to include this plan. 

Commissioner McCrea stated there are a number of trade-offs 
over and above the financial parts of the program that need to 
be studied. He said he would like to see data concerning 
whether or not the other half of the fleet should be rehabilitated. 

Commissioner McCrea outlined a financial plan for funding this 
program which, he said, had been discussed with the Mayor and 
the Mayor's Fiscal Advisory Committee. The proposal assumes 
that the San Francisco Municipal Railway Improvement Corporation 
would issue previously authorized bonds, as needed, to assure 
funding of this program even under the worst case projected for 
obtaining grant funds. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed concern about the high percentage 
(45%) of articulated vehicles projected for the fleet. 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner 
Lenvin, the Municipal Railway 5-Year Plan, 1982-87 was unanimously 
adopted. 

************* 

On motion of Commissioner Lenvin, seconded by Commissioner McCrea, 

the Municipal Railway 5-Year Plan 1981-86 was amended to 

include the Ten Year Vehicle Rehabilitation and Replacement Plan. 

************* 

Public Hearing — To consider a grant application of $49,540,000 
for capital assistance under Sections 3 and 5 of the Urban 
Mass Transportation Act of 1964, as amended, for the purchase 
of 110 forty-foot diesel coaches, 100 articulated sixty-foot 
diesel coacnes and related equipment. 

Ms. Louise Stoll, Director of Capital Resource Development, 
summarized the grant application. She said a letter of no 
prejudice has been requested from the federal government to 
cover purchase of the vehicles included in this application. 
This grant will fund the first three years of the replacement 
program. 



82-116 



Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President CAP/Trans, requested that the 
articulated vehicles be deleted from the grant application 
because there are no facilities to house them and this is a 
"meet and confer" matter which has not been approved by the 
union. 

President Flynn asked if the union representative was present. 
He was not. 

Mr. Fred Perry urged the elimination of the articulated coaches. 

President Flynn was excused at 2:52 P.M. 

Vice President Lenvin presided and closed the public hearing. 

Mr. Sklar said that there is a facilities study currently 
underway. Delivery of the first group of articulated coaches 
is at least 18 months away. By that time we will have a 
facility able to handle them. Regarding discussion with the 
union, he said, that this will be done as part of the annual 
union negotiations. 

************* 

Public Hearing — Municipal Railway J-Line rerail and guideway 
improvement project. 

Ms. Stoll said that this grant application was approved by the 
Commission 11 months ago. The attorney for Urban Mass Trans- 
portation Administration has said that the official public 
hearing for this project which was held in 1974, was too long 
ago. This hearing is to fulfill UMTA's requirements. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt urged deletion of the funds for a raised 
right of way along Church Street. He suggested that these 
FAU funds be used for improvements along LRV lines. 

President Flynn returned to the meeting and stated for the record 
his affirmative vote on Resolution No. 82-0197. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that he is president of a neighborhood 
association in this area. Ten years ago the neighborhood agreed 
to these plans. Everyone in the area is still waiting for 
this project to be completed, which was approved as part of 
the Upper Market Street Beautif ication Project. 

************ 

Resolution No. 82-0211 — Awarding Bureau of Light, Heat, and 
Power Contract No. 198, Maintenance, Repair and Alterations of 
City-owned Street Lighting Systems. 

Mr. Stanley Smith, Secretary-Treasurer, San Francisco Building 
and Construction Trades Council requested that the Commission 
disqualify Bayside Construction Company of San Leandro, California, 
from this bid. He said that the firm is not a San Francisco 
firm, is not signatory to any apprenticeship program and he has 
reason to believe that they bid the job at laborer's wages 
instead of electrician's wages. 

Commissioner Sanger replied that the Commission has been con- 
tinually advised by the City Attorney's Office that unless there 
is something irregular in the bid the Commission has no choice 
but to accept the lowest bid. 



82-117 



President Flynn said that the PUC Contract Compliance Office 
monitors all contracts for payment of the prevailing wage using 
payroll records. The Commission must assume that the contractor 
will comply with all requirements until such time as evidence 
is presented and a hearing held to determine otherwise. 

Mr. Richard Bamberger, of Local 6, cited a current PUC contractor 
which he believed was not paying the prevailing wage nor complying 
with affirmative action and apprenticeship requirements. Com- 
missioner Sanger requested a report at the next meeting on this 
specific contract and on the departments monitoring procedures. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0215 — Authorizing rerouting of the temporary 
motor coach route for Line 24-DIVISADERO, pending electrification. 

Ms. Susan Chelone, of Transit Planning, said that a meeting was 
held in the neighborhood in response to requests from residents 
of 26th Street to consider alternative routings for the tem- 
porary motor coach line 24-DIVISADERO. As a result, staff is 
proposing to reroute the line to run southbound on 25th Street 
and northbound on 26th Street. 

A resident of Noe Valley suggested reversing the directions since 
there is a higher grade on 26th Street and therefore there would 
be more noise. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed the opinion that the only streets 
he considered suitable for bus operation are 24th Street and 
Clipper Street. 

Commissioner McCrea moved approval of rerouting Line 24-DIVISADERO 
to operate southbound on 26th Street and northbound on 25th Street, 
Commissioner Hsieh seconded. Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, 
McCrea and Hsieh voted "aye", Commissioner Sanger voted "no". 

*************** 

Item 22 — Financial Status of 1981-82 PUC Operating Budget, 
Third Quarter. 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, highlighted the 
projected surplus or deficit for each department and indicated 
anticipated shifts of funds in order to balance the budget. 

Regarding the Municipal Railway's claims exposure, Commissioner 
McCrea suggested involving the City Attorney's Office to develop 
a zero based budget for claims. Mr. Moran said he would pursue 
this matter and would include the Mayor's Office and the 
Controller in the discussions. 

Mr. Moran reported that revenue from Fast Pass sales declined 
7.9% below forecast for the month of April, and the number of 
passes sold was down 8.9% below forecast and 16% below the 
prior month's actual sales. By the end of June we project an 
11% reduction in sales. 



82-118 



Commissioner Sanger requested that a letter be forwarded to 
the Board of Supervisors informing them of the impact of the 
fare structure on the regular rider, and those that want to 
use the system in the off-peak period. Commissioner McCrea 
requested inclusion of the senior citizens fare. Also, the 
Board of Supervisors should be advised that this Commission 
may forward a proposal to revise the fare structure if data 
over the next few months warrants such action. 

********* **** 

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar reported that the Board of Supervisors approved a 
stop sign at the corner of 15th Avenue and West Portal which 
we estimate will cost the Municipal Railway $57,000.00 a year 
in operating costs due to delays on three LRV lines and several 
other lines that pass that intersection. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the General Manager send a 
letter to the Board of Supervisors and request that the Board's 
Budget Analyst, in consultation with the Municipal Railway, 
provide a report on the economic impact of adding stop signs. 

At 4:12 Commissioner Sanger was excused. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar recommended commendations for William Wearin, Edward 
Pearson, Javan Farsai, Erich Kaufmann, and Clarence Reed, 
President of D. W. Nicholson Corporation for their work in 
repairing the cable car system in an expeditious manner. 

************* 

COMMUNICATIONS 

In reply to an inquiry by Mr. Maurice Klebolt concerning his 
letter to the Commission informing that a charge can be made 
for street closures affecting Municipal Railway service, 
Commissioner McCrea said that we should start billing these 
costs.

02-132 



******************* 



Resolution No. S2-0251 - Requesting the Controller to draw 
warrants in nayment of claims against the Municipal Railway. 

President Flynn commented that file for one of the claims 
Dronosed for settlement indicates that the driver had 23 
accidents within a 3-1/2 year period. Under action taken 
the report shows that this accident was discussed with his 
supervisor. President Flynn said that this is unacceptable. 

Mr. Sklar replied that last Fall staff tried to move for 
immediate discharge of drivers with excessive accident records. 
Ml we were successful in doing is implementing a retraining 
program. Subsequent accidents can result in dismissal. ! ,7 e 
are only a few months into the program at this time. 

****************** 

Item No. 8 - Regarding weekend service reductions on lines 
21-Hayes, 26-Valencia, 31-3alboa and 71-Haight Noriega. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned the meaning of service parallel 
to Muni Metro lines. He requested data on installing a switch 
at Van Ness and Market Streets to allow the 8-Market to turn 
around at that point. If this switch were installed service 
east of Van Ness could be discontinued on weekends when Metro 
weekend service begins. 

This item was continued to the next meeting. 

****************** 

Commissioner Lenvin arrived at 3:25 P.M. 

Resolution No. 82-0259 - Declaring one Presidents' Conference 
Car and 100 feet of streetcar rail surplus, and donating them 
to the California Department of Parks and Recreation. 

Ms. Smith, Secretary, informed the Commission that the State 
was unable to pay transportation and other costs at this time 
and had therefore requested that this matter be continued until 
funding was available. 

Commissioner Hsieh was excused at 3:30 P.M. 

Resolution No. 82-0259 was adopted with the understanding that 
the State may not be able to obtain the necessary funding to 
accept this donation. 

Commissioner Hsieh returned at 3:32 P.M. 

***************** 

Resolution No. 32-0260 - Awarding Water Department Contract No. 
1819 to the second low bidder, Pat Kennel ly Construction. 

Mr. Anthony de Alcuaz, Attorney representing Power Anderson Inc., 
the low bidder, stated that Power Anderson acknowledges that an 
error was made in the bidding process. Certain materials relatina 
to minority hiring were not included. Efforts were made later to 
try to correct the situation. Ne request that the contract be 
rebid. 



12-133 



In response to Questions by the Commission, Mr. McMorris Dow, 
Utilities General Counsel, stated that the Commission is compelled 
to reject the low bid. 

Commissioner Ilsieh commented that anyone could make a mistake. 
This mistake does not appear to be deliberate. 

On the question, Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin and Sanger voted "aye", 
Commissioner Hsieh voted "no". 

*************** 

Resolution Mo. 82-0261 - Awardina Water Department Contract 
No. 1030. 

Commissioner Sanger asked why staff was recommending award to the 
second lowest bidder. Mr. George Newkirk, Director, MBE/Con tract 
Compliance, stated that the apparent low bidder, W.J. Gaffney, 
Inc., did not meet the Minority 3usiness Enterprise goal, nor 
did he make a good faith effort to do so. He only contacted one 
subcontractor. He did not attend the pre bid meeting nor request 
a list of minority sub contractors. He bid the job listing one 
minority subcontractor for 2 percent of the total contract amount. 
The MBE goal for this contract is 15 percent. The second lowest 
bidder has 17 percent -minoritv participation. In the bid document 
Gaffney stated that he would attempt to meet a M3E goal of 25 
percent. In addition he did not submit Forms 3 and 4 certifying 
minority participation, which are due within 5 days after the bid 
opening. 

Mr. Bill Gaffney, President, W. J. Gaffney, Inc., stated that he 
is trying to comply with the Commission's requirements. 

Commissioner Sanger said that contracts have been awarded to this 
firm in the past without any subcontractors because Gaffney did 
all of the work with his own forces. Mow, that he is proposing 
to use a minority subcontractor staff is recommending that the 
bid be rejected because he didn't meet the MBE goal, when in fact, 
he has gone from zero percent to 2 percent. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to award this contract to W. J. Gaffney, 
Inc., Commissioner Sanger seconded, and the resolution was adopted. 

*************** 

Resolution Mo. 32-0269 - Approving paratransit van service for 
July 1, 1932 to June 30, 1933. 

Commissioner Lenvin questioned why the contract is for 1 year when 
we intend to circulate a request for proposals to provide service 
beginning January, 1933. Mr. Tom Jordan, Director of Special 
Projects replied that the Metropolitan Transportation Commission 
requires that the term of the contract cover the funding period. 

Commissioner Lenvin commented that the terms and conditions of 
the Request For Proposals may be different from this contract an, 1 . 
award would be based upon the lowest qualified bidder. Staff was 
directed to develop the Request For Proposals and submit it to the 
Commission for approval to circulate as soon as possible. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved approval of the contract with amendments 
adding appropriate termination and disclosure language providing 
maximum flexibility to the City.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar reported that a member of the Board of Supervisors has 
introduced a motion to urge the City Attorney to suspend prosecution 
of the lawsuit opposing the Transit Impact Development Fee. 
Commissioner Sanger said that he is of the opinion that the 
Commission should express to the City Attorney its belief that 
defense of this litigation should continue. If the Board of 
Supervisors wishes to act, it should act in the normal manner. 
The Mayor should be able to participate through normal resolution 
and ordinance processes. The Commission can give its opinion to 
the City Attorney, as a separately elected official, as well. 
President Flynn directed that this matter be discussed in executive 
session. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar reported that the Bay Area Rapid Transit District's Board 
of Directors has voted to purchase equipment which would allow 
BART to accept Municipal Railway Fast Passes on their system. He 
urged the Commission to accept the agreement with BART which has 
just been negotiated and will be presented at a subsequent meeting. 

In response to questions regarding the cost of this agreement to us, 
Mr. Bruce Bernhard, Director of the Analysis Unit, said that there is a 
possibility that the net cost will be zero. We anticipate paying 
$3.5 million to "keep BART whole," of which $2.5 million will be 
recovered in added revenue from selling more Fast Passes. We 
will lose $1 million from people who used to pay to ride BART and Muni. 
There are provisions to offset rider diversion; however, excess 
diversion may cost us $400,000 per year, plus $20,000 annually for 
a ridership survey, to be used as the basis for payments. In 
addition, we expect cost savings from reduced service along the 
mission corridor. 

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

President Flynn requested information on restoring the bus stop at 
Valnut and California Streets. Mr. Sklar replied that there is a 
safety problem. People would be crossing the street in between 
:raffic control lights. Commissioner Hsieh requested that this 
natter be discussed at the next meeting. 

************ 

Resolution No. 82-0276 — Public hearing on federal grant application 
:or $6,880,000 to purchase twenty articulated trolley coaches and 
"elated equipment. 

v transcript of this hearing is on file in the office of the Secretary 
>f the Public Utilities Commission. 

n response to a question by the Commission, Mr. Louis Tucciarone, of 
he Bureau of Financial Management, said that these coaches will be 
ised for replacement and expansion of the fleet. 

lr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP/Trans, spoke in opposition 
o purchasing these vehicles from a Communist country. He said 
here has been no input from the maintenance staff. 



82-141 



Ms. Kathi Smith, of the Disabled Democratic Club, stated that in 
past funds that had been reserved for wheelchair lift buses were 
diverted to the cable car system. She asked for an assurance that 
20 buses will be purchased with wheelchair lifts. 

Mr. Sklar said that the 20 buses may be reduced by the amount of 
money granted by the federal government, but the funds cannot 
be diverted to anything else. Mr. Tucciarone said that the 
prior statement regarding diversion of funds to the cable car 
system was erroneous . 

Mr. Mike Muench said that he has riden other articulated buses 
and they all have a horrendous squeak. Commissioner Hsieh said 
that he rode the demonstration bus and did not hear a squeak. 

Mr. Walter O'Donnell, representing Central City District Council, 
commented that the proposed vehicles have not been discussed with 
the union, and that the rear-end will not be able to pull up to 
the curb. 

Commissioner Sanger said that these vehicles will be replacing 
diesel coaches as the 24-Divisadero line is electrified. There 
will be no expansion of the overall fleet. 

************** 

Item No. 15 -- Regarding partially discontinuing weekend service 
on certain lines when weekend LRV service is inaugurated. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, stated that the revised 
proposal would shortline weekend inbound service on Line 26-Valencia 
at 30th and Church Streets, Line 8-Market at Van Ness Avenue and 
Line 71-Noriega at Haight Street and Masonic Avenue. The cost of 
installing a switch at Van Ness Avenue and Market Street to allow 
the 8-Market to turnaround is approximately $10,000.00. 

Mr. Mike Muench said that it is a mistake to give up PCC streetcar 
service on Market Street on weekends. 

Mr. Mack Hicks, 26 Carl Street, said that he wants the Muni Metro 
to run on weekends. He suggested that at least one car operate as a 
shortline in the subway only. 

Mr. Norman Armentrout said that ventilation in the subway is not 
adequate . 

Ms. Leonore Fifer opposed terminating the 71-Noriega at Masonic 
Avenue . 

Ms. Doris Simpson said that instead of cutting service, service 
should be increased on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Mr. Julius Zamacona spoke in opposition to cutting service on 
Line 26-Valencia. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP/TRANS, stated that the 8-Market 
is well used on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren said that Haight Street and Masonic Avenue 
is an undesirable transfer point. 

Mr. Walter O'Donnell opposed reducing service on Line 8-Market. 



82- i 42 



Mr. Norman Rolfe commented that it is sad to see cuts which must be 
made due to budget limitations. The Core Area Transit Maintenance 
District would have taken care of this without service cuts. 

Mr. David Pilpel said that now there is enough service on Line 71- 
Noriega to serve the residents. Riders will oppose any cutbacks. 
Regarding running LRVs on weekends, he said the stations are 
approximately four blocks apart and elderly people may not want to 
walk the added distance. He suggested cutting headways on 
Market Street in order to save the money needed to operate 
weekend LRV service. In addition, he said weekend operation of 
LRVs would mean hiring more maintenance people. President Flynn 
replied that the necessary maintenance costs have been budgeted. 

Ms. Kathi Smith, representing the Disabled Democratic Club, said 
that she is concerned about removal of wheelchair lift service 
on Lines 26-Valencia and 31-Balboa. Mr. Straus replied that 
lift service has been deleted from the 26-Valencia. This is part 
of a program that was worked out with the Paratransit Coordinating 
Council. Ms. Smith suggested that notices of changes to 
handicapped accessible bus lines be posted on the buses. 

Commissioner McCrea expressed concern about cutting the 8-Market. 
He said both core area local service and Muni Metro service are 
needed. Also, he said staff should look at totally abandoning 
Line 21-Hayes on weekends. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that reducing service on Lines 31-Balboa, 
8-Market and 71-Noriega seems feasible as a way to reduce operating 
costs. The 26-Valencia is not parallel service for the Muni Metro 
system. If the 21-Hayes is cut, then the 5-Fulton should run to 
the Trans-Bay Terminal. 

Commissioner Hsieh said he has a problem letting passengers off at 
Haight Street and Masonic Avenue on the 71-Noriega line. 

President Flynn directed that staff revise the proposal and that 
the matter be continued to August 10, 1982. 

Commissioner Sanger was excused at 4:15 P.M. 

************* 

Item No. 9 -- Regarding the proposal to store 29 PCC vehicles 
and dispose of 50 PCC vehicles. 

Commissioner McCrea inquired as to the storage cost of storing more 
vehicles. Mr. Douglas G. Wright, Assistant General Manager, Bureau 
of Administration, PUC , replied that there would be no additional 
costs to store more vehicles at Pier 70, but there would be added 
transportation costs. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that he wanted a review of the number 
of vehicles to be kept to assure that there are enough vehicles to 
take care of all our potential needs, including restoring surface 
rail service on Market Street. Mr. Sklar replied that 29 vehicles 
will cover operation of the E-Line and Market Street service. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved, President Flynn seconded, approval of the 
staff proposal to store 29 cars and dispose of 50. On the question, 
Commissioners Flynn and Hsieh voted "aye", Commissioner McCrea voted 
"no". The motion lost for lack of a majority vote of the 
Commission . 



12-143 



Commissioner McCrea moved to store 50 vehicles and dispose of 29. 
The motion died for lack of a second. 

************* 

Item No. 10 -- Regarding final payment for Hetch Hetchy Contract 
No. 586. (Continued from meeting of June 22, 1982.) 

Mr. Conrad Abbett of Abbett Electric Corporation, requested an 
extension of time on the contract which would offset 25 days of 
liquidated damages. 

President Flynn questioned 142 days which staff proposed be 
excused as used to accomplish a $20,000 change order. 

On the question to approve final payment, Commissioners McCrea 
and Hsieh voted "aye", President Flynn voted "no". The motion 
lost for lack of a majority vote of the Commission. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0293 -- Approving Amendment No. 2 to agreement 
with ' Brien-Kreitzberg and Associates, Inc. 

President Flynn requested that the monthly executive summary reports 
which will be prepared in accordance with item number 2 8 on page 6 
of the amendment be submitted to the Commission.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar stated that last week one of the candidates for the 
position of Municipal Railway General Manager visited San Francisco 
and met members of the Commission and staff. We hope to make a job 
offer and have a response shortly. Commissioner Sanger requested 
that this matter be discussed in executive session immediately 
following this meeting. 

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Lenvin commended the numbers of operators who are 
receiving safe driving awards. She said that she was astounded by 
the numbers of operators who have gone 5, 6, 7, 8, 12 years without 
a single preventive accident. It's a tribute to our operators 
and the Training Department. She said something should be done 
to recognize these achievements, including press coverage. 

Mr. Sklar commented that the reduction in accidents over the past 
year has been rather dramatic. He said he is waiting for the July 
figures to confirm what appears to be outstanding performance. 
If the figures are sustained through July there will be a 
recognition of individual operators and operators systemwide in 
Mid-August . 

************* 

President Flynn inquired about the status of the school pass which 
is due to be in effect October 1, 1982. Mr. Anson Moran, Director 
of Budget Analysis, replied that he would have an update for the 
Commission by the next Commission meeting, August 10, 1982. 

************* 

Commissioner McCrea asked for a sense of the Commission concerning 
the General Manager of Public Utilities assigning his alternate 
to serve on the Planning Commission so that the General Manager can 
devote his full time to more pressing management problems. This 
was approved by common consent. 

************* 

Item No. 7(f) -- Regarding a supplemental appropriation in the 
amount of $346,000 for Water Department claims. 

Commissioner Sanger asked for information to support the amount 
of money being requested in the context of what amount is 
available in the claims budget and what staff expects claims to 
be for the remainder of the year, including this request. 

This matter was continued to the next meeting for preparation 
of the above information. 

************* 



12-151 



INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS (continued) 

In accordance with Commissioner Hsieh's request at the last 
meeting for a discussion of the situation involving deletion 
of the bus stop on California Street at Walnut Street, 
President Flynn said that he had requested Mr. Tony Bruzzone 
to make a presentation on the issue. 

Mr. Bruzzone of the Transit Planning staff, gave an overview 
of the plan to systematically revise bus stops throughout 
the City so that the spacing between bus stops is more 
uniform and is based upon certain criteria. 

All bus stops on the 1-CALIFORNIA line from Presidio Avenue 
to 25th Avenue were reviewed in accordance with established 
criteria resulting in elimination of five bus stops. Last 
June adjustments were made to the portion of the line east 
of Presidio Avenue. It appears that over 3 minutes of running 
time have been saved, which is equal to 10% of the running 
time . 

The residents of Menorah Park, a home for senior citizens 
at 3365 Sacramento Street, complained about removal of the 
bus stop at California and Walnut Streets. Staff met with 
the residents and agreed to compromise by installing a 
waiting shelter at the inbound bus stop at Presidio Avenue 
and adding a stop at their front door on the 3-JACKSON line. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0309 — Scheduling a public hearing to 
consider revision of schedule of rates for the disposal 
of Hetch Hetchy power. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that he has been advised that the 
Commission's settlement with the airlines has not been 
finalized. He expressed concern about the Commission 
continuing to adopt rate schedules based upon an unsigned 
settlement. He requested that the Commission meet in 
executive session with counsel prior to the next Commission 
meeting . 

************* 

Item No. 12 — Regarding amendment to the professional 
services agreement with Parsons-Brinkerhof f-Quade & Douglas, 
Inc. for the J-Line extension. 

Commissioner Sanger stated that since the consultant has 
already done most of the work under the contract and spent 
most of the money, he does not see any justification for a 
20-25 percent reimbursement for escalation of labor costs for 
work already performed. Mr. Sklar requested that this item 
be taken off calendar. 

************* 



82-152 



REPORT ON MUNICIPAL RAILWAY REVENUE CHANGES 

Mr. Moran reported that since the April 1, 1982 Municipal 
Railway fare increase ridership has dropped, revenues have 
increased, but remain below projections. Fast Pass sales 
this year have dropped from 91,500 in January and 95,100 
in February (before the increase from $16.00 to $24.00) 
to 78,100 in May and 68,000 in June. Cash trips have not 
increased proportionately. 

Mr. Sklar said that there is no question that fare evasion 
has increased, Fast Pass sales have dropped, and ridership 
has dropped, all as a result of the fare increase. 

Commissioner Sanger said that we have gotten away from the 
program of trying to entice people away from cash and 
transfers, and into Fast Passes. We need to reduce the 
Fast Pass equivalency below 40 rides. 

Commissioner Hsieh said that he wanted to maintain this 
program for another 6 months before making a decision 
because riders will come back once they adjust to the 
higher fare. 

Commissioner Lenvin pointed out that 30,000 people are now 
paying cash rather than using Fast Passes. We are losing 
the other benefits of Fast Pass use. 

Commissioner McCrea expressed the opinion that in addition 
to reducing the Fast Pass, transfers should be limited to one 
ride. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that staff prepare a rec- 
ommendation that prices the Fast Pass below a 40 ride 
equivalency in order to increase its usage. If the pro- 
jected revenue will not provide a 33% farebox recovery 
of operating costs, then the proposal should include a 
paid transfer. 

In summary, Mr. Sklar said that the staff recommendation 
would address the Fast Pass price, discount fares, and 
the transfer policy. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner Hsieh seconded, to 
set the date of August 24, 1982 for a public hearing, and 
that staff present its recommendations at the August 10, 
1982 meeting. 

Commissioner Lenvin said that many people take vacation in 
August, therefore the public hearing should be in September. 

Commissioner Sanger replied that it will take a minimum of 
6 weeks and possibly 3 months to put new fares into effect. 
On the question to set the public hearing for August 24, 
1982, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea, Sanger and Hsieh voted 
"aye". Commissioner Lenvin voted "no". The motion carried.

82-153 



Resolution No. 82-0318 — Rerouting Municipal Railway line 
5 8 -LEAVENWORTH. 

Mr. Sklar recommended rerouting Line 5 8 -LEAVENWORTH southbound 
along Post and Mason Streets rather than Post and Jones Streets 
to better serve the Union Square area. The recommended route 
has the support of the merchants. 

Resolution No. 82-0318 was unanimously adopted. 

************* 

Item No. 18 - Presentation of the Capital Project Budget 
Procedure . 

Ms. Louise Stoll, Director of Capital Resource Development, 
stated that a system has been developed for all capital 
projects, whether grant funded or not. The Municipal Railway 
will be the first department to use the system. It will be 
extended to the Water Department and Hetch Hetchy Water and 
Power later. 

Mr. Angelo Mitchner, of Capital Resource Development, described 
the new procedure in detail. 

************* 

Resolution No. 81-0319 -- Requesting the San Francisco 
Municipal Railway Improvement Corporation (S .F .M.R. I .C . ) to 
set aside $7 million to be used for the Cable Car Recon- 
struction Project, if needed. 

Ms. Stoll said that this action is requested to guarantee the 
availability of private contributions to the Save the 
Cable Car Committee so that contracts can be certified 
according to the time schedule. This would be a loan that 
would only be used if necessary. She said that the S.F.M.R.I.C 
Board of Directors informed her that they will approve this 
request under the following conditions: 

1. The Public Utilities Commission makes a 
formal request; 

2. Receipt of a "letter of intent" or cash from the 
Federal government to cover its $23 million 
unfunded share; 

3. Confirmation that the cable car project is a 
"transit" project; 

4. Receipt of a letter from the City Attorney 
verifying that this is a proper transaction; and 

5. Assurance that all available private contribution 
funds will be used first and that the corporation 
will be repaid promptly when funds become available .

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Lenvin requested an opinion from the City Attorney 
regarding the adequacy of the proposed alternate Municipal 
Railway service during the cable car rehabilitation period. 

- o - 

Commissioner Lenvin stated that there is a great deal of community 
opposition to the moving of the terminal and electrical 
facilities for the No. 8-MARKET line in the Castro area. The 
community should be given an opportunity to comment on the 
project. Commissioner Lenvin asked if the contractor could 
stop work until the Commission had heard the community's 
concerns. Mr. Sklar replied that any request of the 
contractor to delay work will be costly. He said that staff 
will report to the Commission August 24, 1982 on two recent 
neighborhood meetings on this matter. He asked that no 
action be taken until the report is given. 

Commissioner McCrea pointed out that the Municipal Railway 
5-Year Plan does not imply approval of specific line changes. 
Each change should be discussed prior to its implementation. 

************* 

Presentation of the 1982-83 Public Utilities Commission 
Training Program. 

Ms. Michal Settles, Training Unit Manager, provided an overview 
of the following major training programs for this year: 1) 
Management Training; 2) Supervisory Training; 3) Skills 
Training; 4) Informational Seminars; 5) Safety; 6) Clerical 
Skills Program; 7) Joint Labor Management Board (JLMB) Project; 
and 8) Administrative Functions. 

Commissioner McCrea requested that staff forward the summary of 
the training program to the Mayor. 

************* 



82-161 



************* 

Item No . 9 - Presentation on State Proposition 13, Water 
Resources, Conservation and Efficiency Act. 

Ms. Helen Burke, representing the California Water Protection 
Council, spoke in support of Proposition 13. Mr. Jeptha Wade, 
Chief Engineer of the California Water Service Company in San 
Jose, spoke in opposition to the initiative. 

Following questions of both sides by members of the Commission, 
consideration of a position on this ballot measure was continued 
to August 24, 1982. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0337 - Authorizing partial discontinuance of 
weekend service on Municipal Railway lines 7-HAIGHT, 26-VALENCIA 
and 31 -BALBOA. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, Municipal Railway, pre- 
sented the revised staff recommendation as follows: 1) eliminate 
the outer portion of the 26-VALENCIA since it parallels the 
M-line, and terminate the line at Van Ness Avenue rather than 
5th Street; 2) discontinue the 7-HAIGHT, rather than the 
71-NORIEGA; and 3) reduce frequency on the 8-MARKET and 
operate over the entire route instead of terminating the line 
at Van Ness Avenue. 

Mr. Rick Hansen, representing the San Francisco Public Housing 
Tenants Association, opposed the reduction of service on lines 
feeding into Market Street which would result in the passenger 
having to transfer to another vehicle. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans, said that the 

Haight Street corridor two years ago had 6 lines serving the area. 

This proposal will leave 2 lines to do the work of 6. 

Commissioner Lenvin said that at the invitation of the union, 
she rode the 71-NORIEGA on a Saturday and the vehicle was 
practically empty on a day when there was a function at Kezar 
Stadium. 

Mr. Vernon Anderson supported the staff recommendation. 

Ms. Marguerite Warren spoke in support of the staff recommendation, 

Mr. Julius Zamacoma opposed termination of the 26-VALENCIA at 
Van Ness Avenue and Market Street. 

Mr. Fred Perry said that the proposed changes are good but the 
problem is that Muni Metro is "backing up" at 5:45 A.M. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0338 - Opposing the operation of 21-passenger 
jitney buses. 

Mr. Lawrence Martin, International Representative for the 
Transport Workers Union of America, spoke in opposition to the 
21-passenger jitney bus now in operation. He said that the 
vehicle is carrying standees which raises the capacity to 
approximately 38 people. 

82-162 



Commissioner McCrea moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, a motion 
to authorize the President of the Commission to write to the Police 
Commission expressing this Commission's opposition to the operation 
of a 21-passenger jitney bus and to request the Police Commission 
to revoke the permit and not issue any others for vehicles larger 
than the current jitney vans. In addition, the Commission should 
obtain the opinion of the City Attorney as to the possibility of 
transferring control of jitney operations from the Police Com- 
mission to the Public Utilities Commission, by ordinance. 

************* 

Item No. 12 - Discussion of certain requirements 
for employment of transit operators. 

Mr. Sklar stated that if the Commission has no objections, it is 
staff's intention to meet and confer with the union for the 
purpose of developing uniform criteria relative to operators 
who have been convicted of certain violations of the State Motor 
Vehicle Code. 

Since no objections were expressed, President Flynn said that the 
Commission approved the proposed action by common consent. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0342 - Authorizing an agreement to 
store fifty PCC vehicles and spare parts at Pier 70 
and authorizing the disposal of twenty-nine PCC cars. 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Assistant General Manager, Administration, said 
that he has reviewed future Municipal Railway plans and recommends 
the storage of 29 PCC vehicles for future needs. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved, President Flynn seconded, approval of 
the staff recommendation to retain 29 vehicles and to dispose of 
the remaining 50. On the question, Commissioners Flynn and Hsieh 
voted "aye" , Commissioners Lenvin and McCrea voted "no" . The 
motion was lost. 

Commissioner McCrea moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded, to store 
50 PCC vehicles and spare parts at Pier 70 and dispose of the 
remaining 29 vehicles. On the question, Commissioners Flynn, 
Lenvin and McCrea voted "aye", Commissioner Hsieh voted "no". 

************* 

Commissioner Lenvin was excused at 3:55 P.M. 

Item No. 24 - Presentation of staff recommendations for 
Municipal Railway fare adjustment. 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, stated that staff 
recommends the following: 1) reduce the Fast Pass from $24.00 
to $22.00; 2) increase the senior citizen and handicapped persons 
fare from 5C to 25C and the discount Fast Pass from $2.50 to 
$5.00; and 3) restrict the use of transfers to a single use, 



12-163 



and "tighten-up" on transfer management. 

President Flynn announced that the public hearing on this 
proposal will be August 24, 1982, at 2:00 P.M., in Room 282, 
City Hall, San Francisco. All comments will be heard at that 
time .

************* 



Public Hearing to consider modifications to the Schedule of 
Rates, Fares and Charges for the Municipal Railway and 
amendments to the General Transfer Rules. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to table consideration of any change in 
the senior citizen/handicapped discount fare and Fast Pass. 
Commissioner Hsieh seconded. The motion was unanimously adopted. 

The meeting was recessed at 2:14 P.M. 
At 2:21 P.M. the meeting was reconvened. 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, presented the staff 
recommendation to reduce the Fast Pass to $22.00 and limit transfers 
to a single use. Special transfers would be issued on certain 



12-171 



terminal/community service lines which feed the basic route 
system. This would enable most of the people who require two 
transfers to get to their destination on one fare. In the case 
of two transfer trips not involving a terminal line, the 
passenger would be allowed to purchase a second transfer for 
25C. 

President Flynn announced that public comments would be heard at 
this time on the proposal to reduce the Fast Pass. 

Ms. Debbie Gardner, 2474 Washington Street, said that there is no 
savings in purchasing the Fast Pass at $24.00. She supported 
reducing the price. 

Ms. Antanina Ortega, 226 Clayton Street, expressed concern 
about personal safety aboard Muni vehicles. 

Mr. Constantine expressed the opinion that the Municipal Railway 
has financial problems because it is poorly managed and spends 
millions of dollars on labor costs. 

Commissioner McCrea replied that the Municipal Railway is the 
most cost efficient public transportation system in the 
country according to statistics compiled by the United States 
Government and the American Public Transit Association (APTA) . 

Mark Sylvan, 21 Belvedere Street, stated that he knows people 
who are making counterfeit Fast Passes. He said the system 
should be free. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President CAP/Trans, pointed out that it 
was the Board of Supervisors that established the $24.00 price 
for the Fast Pass, not the Public Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Joseph Freedman, 820 O'Farrell Street, spoke in support 
of lowering the Fast Pass because sales have been declining 
since November 1981. 

Mr. Sklar stated that the November 1981 decline was minor and 
related to the general slow down of the economy and seasonal 
factors, not the cost of the Fast Pass. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, stated 
that the 33% farebox recovery requirement of AB-1107 is the 
cause of the problems. He urged the Commission to request 
the State Legislature to change the law by deleting that 
requirement. 

Mr. Julius Zamacoma said that the Fast Pass should be lowered 
to $20.00. 

A man identifying himself as EZ 80" s, 126 Fairmount Street, 
said that the staff proposal pits the Fast Pass riders against 
the old people. 

Ms. Joyce Hall spoke in support of retaining the $24.00 Fast 
Pass because fares will have to be raised due to cuts in federal 
and state funding. 

Ms. Melody Lamar of the Gray Panthers, said that the City has a 
surplus of over $50 million. That should be enough to take 
care of Muni. 



12-172 



Mr. Lyon Lewis Coons spoke in favor of daily and weekly Fast Passes. 

Mr. Ron Little said that there's no such thing as a free ride. 
Someone has to pay--taxes go up and businesses raise prices. 

Ms. Shirley Rosenberg said that the people who come to the City 
from out of state should pay. She said that she cannot afford 
to pay $5.00 for a Fast Pass. 

Mr. Will Cole said that it's not practical to buy a Fast Pass at 
$24.00. It should be lowered to $20.00. 

An unidentified man said that those receiving unemployment and 
welfare should be given a free Fast Pass or a low cost Fast Pass. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to reduce the Fast Pass to $21.00. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. Mr. Sklar said that in his 
opinion a $21.00 Fast Pass will not produce sufficient revenue to meet 
the 33% AB-1107 farebox recovery requirement. 

Commissioner McCrea said that he was not prepared to act on 
Fast Passes until the Commission has acted on transfers. He 
said that a wide gap in revenue would be created if the Fast 
Pass were to be reduced and the transfer policy was not 
changed. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the motion be tabled until 
after the Commission had voted on transfers. 

Mr. Sklar explained the terminal line transfer system with the 
aid of a map. 

President Flynn requested public comments on the transfer 
proposal . 

Mr. Kevin Jackson, 615-A Castro Street, said that some students 
are selling transfers. 

Mr. Norman Armentrout, 108 Haight Street, spoke in support of 

a two use transfer. He said the driver could punch a hole in the 

transfer for the first use. 

Mr. Will Cole of the Recreation Center for the Handicapped, said 
that restricting the use of transfers would cut into their 
programming of "mainstreaming" people by taking them to various 
events on Muni. 

Ms. Debbie Gardner said that a single use transfer would com- 
plicate matters. 

Mr. Stanley Wong, 300 Cortland Avenue, favored leaving the 
transfer as it is. He said that some drivers allow persons 
known to them to ride free. President Flynn asked that Mr. 
Wong report such incidents to the Community Affairs Division. 

Mr. Bill Wright, representing the San Francisco Council of 
District Merchants, commented on the current abuse of 
transfers . 

Ms. Barbara Dorff, 1460 Haight Street, said that restricting 
the transfer will force people to buy a Fast Pass. However, 
some people have irregular travel patterns and do not need a 
Fast Pass. 



82-173 



Mr. Mark. Sylvan, 21 Belvedere, pointed out that senior citizens 
will have to pay $.25 to purchase a second transfer. 

Mr. Charles Rozema, of the Eureka Valley Promotion Association, 
said that last year the Commission simplified the transfer 
system to minimize conflicts between drivers and riders. The 
proposal will slow down service and discourage ridership. 

Mr. Jonnie H. Gilbert, Acting President of the Transport 
Workers Union, Local 250A, objected to changing the transfer 
rules. He said that this should be a meet and confer matter for 
the union and management. 

Ms. Leonore Fifer said that she goes to the doctor twice a week. 
She needs to transfer twice. She said that it would not pay her 
to buy a Fast Pass. 

Mr. Mark Schwartz suggested that transfers should be valid for 
3 hours and cost $.50. He also suggested a Fast Pass valid for 
3 months priced at $48.00, and taxing downtown corporations. 

Mr. Stash Lowe, 1338 Haight, said that often he has had to wait 
an hour for a bus when transferring. Many times he walks. 

Mr. Nathan Salant said that the transfer proposal is really a 
fare increase. 

Mr. Joseph Freedman suggested that Muni use the honor system and 
charge stiff fines for violators. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe spoke in favor of the current transfer system. 
He said restricting transfers may encourage more automobile usage. 

President Flynn continued this hearing until after the special 
joint meeting scheduled for 5:00 P.M. with the Planning Commission 
and the Director of Public Works. 

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar announced that he had appointed Mr. Frank Baggetta as 
the interim General Manager of the Municipal Railway. 

at 4:52 P.M. the meeting was recessed and the Commission went 
into executive session on an attorney-client matter. 

************* 

The meeting reconvened at 6:56 P.M. 
Commissioner Hsieh was excused. 



PUBLIC HEARING 

Resolution No. 82-0352 -- Adopting a revised Schedule of Rates 
for furnishing Hetch Hetchy power. 

Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, 
stated that the proposed resolution includes charging those 
municipal departments that receive revenues other than from the 
general fund the full schedule, without discount. 



82-174 



Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, asked 
what rate the Municipal Railway would pay under the revised 
schedule. Mr. Coffey replied that there would be no change 
for the Municipal Railway. They will continue to pay the 
discount rate. 

Commissioner Sanger said that during the recess the Commission 
adopted Resolution Nos. 82-0353, 82-0354 and 82-0355 in 
executive session relating to litigation with the airlines on 
Hetch Hetchy power rates. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0366 - Supporting State Proposition 13, Water 
Resources Conservation and Efficiency Act. 

Mr. Eugene Kelleher, General Manager and Chief Engineer, San 
Francisco Water Department, submitted written comments to the 
Commission regarding possible problems that may occur as a 
result of the passage of State Proposition 13, Water Resources 
Conservation and Efficiency Act, on the November 2, 1982 
ballot. He responded to questions from the Commissioners. 

Commissioner McCrea commented that Proposition 13 deals with 
issues in the area of conservation that this Commission has 
been unable to accomplish through contracts. 

Commissioner Lenvin expressed the opinion that under the City's 
water rights and the water code the City would be able to expand 
to 400 million gallons daily. 

Commissioner Sanger said if anything is going to be done on 
a state-wide basis, all local jurisdictions will have to 
give up something. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to support the proposition, 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. The motion was adopted. 

************* 

Continuation of public hearing to consider modifications to 
the Schedule of Rates, Fares and Charges for the Municipal 
Railway and amendments to the General Transfer Rules. 

An unidentified speaker said that the present transfer system 
is equal to a short-term Fast Pass. Short-term Fast Passes have 
worked well in other cities. 

Mr. George Kustner said that transfer abuse is caused by drivers 
leaving transfer pads on the bus when they get off the vehicle 
for a few minutes. He supported retention of the present 
transfer system. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP/Trans, questioned whether the 
terminal transfer concept was workable, particularly on the return 
trip. He suggested that operators be required to keep transfers 
in their possession. 

Mr. Vernon Anderson expressed the opinion that the present trans- 
fer system is too liberal. The proposed single use system is too 
restrictive. He suggested reinstating the directional transfer. 



82-175 



Mr. Steve Leone stated that operators are issuing transfers 
which are valid for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. He suggested that after 
8:00 P.M. riders receive Fast Passes for the rest of the night. 
He suggested that the late night category on the transfer form 
be changed from 4:00 A.M. to 12:00 midnight. 

Mr. Bruce Marshall, representing the Muni Coalition, opposed 
any restrictions on transfers. He spoke in favor of using an 
untorn transfer as a day pass. 

The public hearing was closed. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the motion to reduce the Fast 
Pass be taken from the table. On the question to lower the 
Fast Pass to $21.00, Commissioner Sanger voted "aye", Commissioners 
Flynn, Lenvin and McCrea voted "no". The motion was lost. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to limit the transfer to a single 
use, not incorporating any of the other proposals made by staff. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. Commissioner McCrea said that 
those who use Muni a lot will have the option of buying a 
Fast Pass. He said he believes that collecting transfers will 
substantially reduce transfer abuse. 

Commissioner Sanger said that the meaning of a transfer is being 
distorted. The purpose is to allow a person to begin their 
trip at one point and end their trip at their destination. 
The only reason to change the present system is to reduce 
cheating. The solutions are creating other problems. We have 
not yet exhausted the administrative solutions we have in 
terms of control over the distribution, handling, delivery and 
receipt of transfers. While staff has recommended certain 
administrative controls, they have not been implemented. We 
don't know what results they will produce. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that he will not support reducing 
the Fast Pass without either a single use transfer or a paid 
transfer to offset the loss in fare revenue. 

President Flynn stated that he is not in favor of charging for 
a second transfer under any condition. He said he also had a 
problem with issuing a second transfer. 

On the question, Commissioners Lenvin and McCrea voted "aye". 
Commissioners Flynn and Sanger voted "no". The motion was lost. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to adopt a $21.00 Fast Pass, Commissioner 
Sanger seconded. On the question Commissioners Lenvin and 
Sanger voted "aye", Commissioner Flynn and McCrea voted "no". 

President Flynn announced that this matter would be continued 
to the next regular meeting, September 14, 1982. Staff was 
directed to present data on a one directional transfer at that 
time .

Copies of the above resolution are on file in the office of 
the Secretary of the Public Utilities Commission. 



******* 

Mr. Richard Sklar, General Manager, Public Utilities Commission, 
stated that the issues to be considered are: (1) shall the Board 
of Supervisors be asked to reverse its earlier stand that there 
shall be no tracks on Market Street, from the Ferry Building to 
Van Ness Avenue; and (2) shall the Board of Supervisors be asked 
to reverse its stand that there shall be no passenger loading 
islands from the Ferry Building to Van Ness Avenue. 

Mr. Glenn Erickson, Market Street Coordinator, said that a decision 
is needed so that the Department of Public Works can complete the 
Market Street Beautif ication Project and so that the Municipal 
Railway can rewire Market Street. The Municipal Railway 5-Year 



82-178 



Plan calls for four transit lanes and loading islands on Market 
Street. In addition, there is the issue of the tracks. The 
Board of Supervisors has previously requested that the Public 
Utilities Commission not take any action on the streetcar tracks 
or the loading islands without consulting with them. 

Mr. Erickson summarized the Market Street Design/Planning Study, 
by DKS Associates, consultant. The study presents three 
alternatives for transit and traffic lanes on Market Street; 
Alternative A — with streetcars, weave all tracks; Alternative 
B — without streetcars, weave lanes; Alternative C — with 
streetcars, keep good track/weave new track. 

Mr. Sklar said that the proposed streetcar line for Market 
Street (the F line) will only operate if the E-line is 
implemented along The Embarcadero. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments. An 
unidentified speaker spoke in favor of removing the tracks and 
loading islands from Market Street. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, Cap/Trans, spoke in favor of 
making Market Street a transit street and retaining the tracks 
and islands. 

Mr. Charles Rosbaugh, Transit Chair of the Eureka Valley 
Promotion Association, supported keeping the tracks so that 
options would be open to increase transit service to downtown. 

Mr. Peter Ehrlich, a Municipal Railway driver, supported 
retaining the tracks. He said the operation of old streetcars 
on the J-line has been a huge success. 

Mr. Steve Taber, representing the ad hoc Market Street Streetcar 
Committee, spoke in support of keeping the tracks and streetcars 
to serve the growing number of office workers, and residents 
living near Market Street. He urged consideration of retaining 
streetcar service west of Van Ness Avenue. 

Mr. Mario Campi said that in 1963 he was commissioned, as an 
architect, to design Market Street. The design placed transit 
services underground and the surface was to be used for pedestrian 
purposes. Now, we are going back to where we started. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, representing San Francisco Tomorrow, urged the 
adoption of Alternative C, which would keep the tracks and make 
maximum use of those tracks that are in good condition. 

Mr. Bruce Marshall of the San Francisco Muni Coalition, supported 
continued and expanded rail service on Market Street and also 
electric trolley service. 

Mr. Arthur Moore supported retaining the tracks and all streetcars. 

Mr. Joseph Freedman said that he was in favor of the proposal 
to keep the tracks and the islands. 

Mr. Phillip Hoffman said that other cities are reopening their 
tram systems. We have a priceless asset here that we don't 
want to throw away. 



82-179 



Mr. Mike Muensh said that it would be a crime to get rid of the 
tracks now. 

Mr. Louis Coombs said that the City has a duty to serve its 
residents. Those people living near Market Street want the 
streetcars retained. 

Mr. Frank Scheiffler said that the carrying capacity of the 
streetcar line is not needed. He said that he doesn't see how 
this line can pay for itself. 

Mr. Mike Levin spoke in favor of retaining the tracks. 

Clarence Fisher said that the Muni Metro system is too crowded 
now. Another alternative is needed. 

Mr. Bart Kooler suggested repairing and retaining the PCC cars 
and the tracks. 

Mr. Paul Godeau, Chairman of the Peninsula Commuters Action 
Committee, said that retaining streetcar service on Market 
Street will provide connections to other regional systems and 
will allow people coming into the downtown area to move around. 

Commissioner Bierman expressed concern about the area west of 
Van Ness Avenue and, also, retaining the intent of the Market 
Street Beautif ication Plan. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that Market Street should be accessible 
to people, not cars. Tearing up the rails would be a serious 
mistake. 

Commissioner Sanger amended the resolution to refer to a Civic 
Center terminus rather than a Civic Center access loop and to 
define the area covered by the resolution as Market Street 
east of Van Ness Avenue. Commissioner Sanger then moved adoption 
of the resolution, as amended. Commissioner Hsieh seconded. The 
resolution was unanimously adopted by the Public Utilities 
Commission . 

The Planning Commission unanimously adopted the same resolution. 

Mr. Jeffrey Lee, Director of Public Works, requested that staff 
investigate the Bay Area Rapid Transit District's (BART) 
financial responsibility for resurfacing the street. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that this project be represented 
to both Commissions, either jointly or separately, so that 
the details can be discussed.

Item No. 4 - Awarding of four contracts for the rehabilitation of 
Cable Car Trackway -- 

Commissioner Sanger asked what the provisions were for liquidated 
damages in the event of delays in the performance of these 
contracts . 

Mr. Clay Baldwin, Project Manager, replied $2,500 per calendar 
day per contract. Also, the specifications allow for the 
assessment of liquidated damages the day the contractor falls 
behind schedule rather than at the end of the contract. The 
contractors will be informed that they are being docked for that 
amount, and if they have the ability, they can recover it by 
advancing the schedule back to normal. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that ' Brien-Kreitzberg provide the 
Commission with regular monthly reports. Mr. Sklar said that 
he will see to it that periodic reports are issued. 



82-183 



For the record, Mr. Sklar asked Mr. George Newkirk, Director, 
MBE/Contract Compliance, Mr. McMorris M. Dow, Utilities General 
Counsel, Mr. Oral Moore, Chief Engineer, and the construction 
managers, each to affirm the fact that they have reviewed the 
contracts, concur in the recommendation of award of contracts, 
and conformance from their particular standpoint. They individually 
replied affirmatively. 

Commissioner Hsieh inquired about the award of Contract MR-833 to 
Stacy and Whitbeck, Inc., Newark, California. He noticed there 
is a great difference between the lowest bidder and the highest 
bidder. Mr. Clay Baldwin stated that they had a meeting with 
staff of Stacy and Witbeck, Inc. and reviewed their estimates and 
details of the contract. The firm was able to submit a low bid 
due to the fact that they are a relatively small firm and they 
elected to do a lot of the work themselves. 

Commissioner Sanger wanted to know what were the standards for 
terminating a contract. 

Mr. Fred Kreitzberg said that while it is not going to be an easy 
job to accomplish, he feels sure that he has the best ammunitions 
possible to get seven contractors doing what they should be doing 
at one time. In addition, Mr. Baldwin said there is sufficient 
time in the schedule to take into consideration a very bad rainy 
season, some problems in the intersections, and other problems 
not presently anticipated. 

Commissioner McCrea moved, Commissioner Hsieh seconded, and the 
following resolutions were adopted: 

Resolution No. 82-0368 - Contract No. MR-828 to W. R. Thomason, In 
Res. No. 82-0369 - MR-829 to Underground/Railco 
Res. No. 82-0370 - MR-831 to Underground/Railco 
Res. No. 82-0371 - MR-833 to Stacy and Witbeck, Inc. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0372 — Awarding Contract No. MR-684, Rehabilitation 
of Cable Car Barn and Surrounding Trackway in the net amount of 
$17,182,000 to the second low bidder, Tutor-Saliba , Sylmar, 
California. 

Mr. McMorris M. Dow reported that the low bidder, VSL Corporation 
and R. L. Enterprises, Los Gatos, California, did not submit a 
responsive bid. Secondly, the bidder does not have a joint venture 
contractor's license. Not only was the bid very ambiguous, but 
the numbers did not correlate. 

Mr. Sklar asked Mr. Newkirk and Mr. Baldwin comformance from their 
respective standpoint, to which they replied yes. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved to award to the second low bidder, Tudor- 
Saliba, Sylmar, California, and Commissioner Sanger seconded. 
The resolution was adopted. 

************* 



82-184 



Resolution No. 82-0373 -- Requesting the San Francisco Municipal 
Railway Improvement Corporation, (S.F.M.R.I.C.) , Board of Directors, 
to assure the availability of up to $25 million for the cable 
car project, if needed. 

President Flynn explained that the S.F.M.R.I.C. will issue a 
guarantee, a very simple form, that we have the money, in case 
it is needed. Based upon projections which the Finance Bureau 
is preparing, we may never need this money, but the Controller 
wants to make sure that this fund has been set aside. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to request the S.F.M.R.I.C, Board of 
Directors, to assure the availability of up to $25 million, if 
needed, and Commissioner McCrea seconded, and the resolution was 
adopted.

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Vice President Lenvin read a letter from Acting Mayor, John L 
Molinari, dated September 13, 1982, conveying the concerns of the 
members of the Board of Supervisors, with reference to the 
proposed route for the No. 58 - LEAVENWORTH bus, and urging 
this Commission to reconsider this route. 

Mr. Sklar presented staff recommendations for alternative routes 
with the aid of wall maps. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. Peter Brown, representing the Fisherman's Wharf Merchants 
Association, supported extending the bus beyond Jones Street 
to Taylor Street. 

Ms. Marcia Olson, a resident of Russian Hill, said that she 
supported Supervisor Molinari' s suggested routing. She stated 
that the Vallejo and Larkin area already has a serious parking 
problem. 

Ms. Victoria Gaugin, a resident of Russian Hill, spoke in 
opposition to routing buses on Larkin, Francisco and Vallejo 
Streets due to noise and pollution, and urged approval of 
Supervisor Molinari 's proposed route. 

Mr. Patrick Flanagan, President of Fisherman's Wharf Association, 
speaking in behalf of the merchants on Restaurant row, stated 
that extension of the line to Taylor Street is extremely critical 
to the Port Commission's Tenants. 

An unidentified resident of Larkin Street, pointed out various 
dangerous intersections along Larkin Street. She urged strict 
enforcement of traffic laws. 

Mr. Saul Seevy stated that the people on Larkin Street don't 
want a bus on the street. 

Ms. Mary Suisan, Director of Russian Hill Improvement Association, 
urged adoption of the route recommended in Supervisor Molinari' s 
resolution . 



B 2-1 9 3 



Commissioner Lenvin moved adoption of the Board of Supervisor's 
proposed route, with the proviso that the matter come back to 
the Commission in three months to check the cost of the running 
time, the adequacy of service and to see if there is a demand 
for service. She said that she was concerned that there may be 
a number of people living on top of the hill near Leavenworth 
Street who will be severely disadvantaged by not having a cable 
car. Commissioner Hsieh seconded the motion, with the 
suggestion that the trial period be extended to six months. 
Commissioner Lenvin accepted an amendment to set a four mon+-h 
trial period. 

Mr. Sklar stated that staff was not going to study this 
route. Whatever the Commission approved would be in place 
for the life of the construction period. 

On the question, Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, McCrea and 
Hsieh voted, 'aye'. Commissioner Sanger voted 'no 1 . 

*********** 

Resolution No. 82-0386 - Authorizing retention of the present 
terminal loop for the No. 8-MARKET line. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, presented three 
alternatives for construction of a new terminal loop for 
the No. 8-MARKET line: 1) extend the present loop over the 
hill to 20th Street (construction of this alternative is 
currently underway) ; 2) abandon the work that has been done 
on alternative 1 and retain the present terminal loop; and 3) 
fund a new loop suggested by the neighborhood. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to retain the present location of 
the terminal loop and to write off construction costs incurred 
to date for relocation of the loop as a staff error. On the 
question Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, McCrea and Hsieh voted 
"aye". Commissioner Sanger voted "no". 



*********** 

Commissioner Lenvin was excused at 2:15 P.M. 

Resolution No. 82-0385 - Authorizing modification of service 
on lines 30X-FREEWAY EXPRESS, 4 3-MASONIC and 4 5-GREENWICH 
SHUTTLE. 

Mr. John Hepburn, Secretary-Treasurer, Transport Workers Union, 
Local 250A, stated that the union had not been informed of 
these proposed changes, and that the additional service hours 
could not be squeezed from other lines. 



82-192 



Commissioner Sanger moved to approve the staff recommendation, 
with the condition that staff reach an agreement with the 
union and that the Scheduling Department report to the 
Commission, regarding the ability of the Municipal Railway to 
generate the additional hours and what the impact will be. 
Commissioner McCrea seconded. The motion was adopted. 



*********** 

Commissioner Lenvin returned at 3:45 P.M. 

Item No. 13 - Regarding draft of the transit advertising 
Request for Proposals and the draft of the new transit 
advertising agreement. 

Following discussion, Commissioner Lenvin moved to adopt- as 
Commission policy to allow advertising on all Municipal Railway 
transit vehicles, with the exception of the light rail vehicles, 
Commissioner Sanger seconded. 

Commissioner McCrea said that he strongly disagreed. He said 
that advertising has become excessive on the cable cars. The 
reason advertising was not permitted on the Grumman Flxible 
coaches was because there were structural reasons for not 
placing advertising on vehicles with plastic sides. We don't 
know what kind of vehicles we will have in the future. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested handling this mode by mode. 
Commissioner Lenvin withdrew her motion. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to allow advertising on all trolley 
buses. Commissioner Sanger seconded. The motion was 
unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to allow advertising on all diesel 
buses. Commissioner Sanger seconded. The motion was 
unanimously adopted. 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, PUC asked if the previous motions included 
articulated trolley and diesel buses. President Flynn replied 
affirmatively . 

Commissioner Sanger moved to allow advertising on the cable 
cars to the same extent that has existed traditionally 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. The motion was amended to 
allow some advertising on the cable cars, not to exceed the 
quantity presently authorized, subject to later review by the 
Commission. The motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved to not allow advertising on the 
light rail vehicles. Commissioner Hsieh seconded. The 
motion was unanimously adopted. 



82-193 



In response to a question by Mr. Terry Francois, attorney 
for Trans-America, Commissioner Lenvin said that the 
intent of the foregoing motions was to indicate a basic 
policy and give direction to staff. It should be clear 
that in any future contract there will be a provision 
giving staff the right to remove a particular vehicle 
or sets of vehicles from the operation if the contract 
should maintenance or safety problems arise. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to provide advertising on the 
back of Muni transfers, Fast Passes, and timetables, to 
the extent that other informational requirements permit. 
On the question, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea, Sanger 
and Hsieh voted "aye" . Commissioner Lenvin voted "no" . 

Commissioner Sanger moved to reaffirm the policy of 
advertising on the Platform Display Sign (PDS) system and 
in the subway. The motion was unanimously approved. 

President Flynn expressed the opinion that the proposed 
penalty clause cannot be uniformly applied and therefore 
should not be included in the contract. 

This matter was continued for two weeks. 



*********** 

Resolution No. 82-0390 - Authorizing retention of the 
services of Environmental Impact Planning Corporation. 

Commissioner Lenvin expressed concern about approving 

a consultant without a detailed scope of work and definite 

cost figures. 

Commissioner Hsieh inquired as to whether there was a 
conflict of interest in having a member of the Sierra 
Club serve on the selection committee. Mr. Sklar 
replied in the negative. 

Commissioner McCrea suggested that the Commission pay the 
top two or three firms to prepare a scope of work, a schedule 
and a preliminary budget. This would provide the Commission 
with information upon which the Commission can make a know- 
ledgeable selection of a firm to carry out the work. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested hiring an arbitrator to bring 
together all the different interests that are potentially 
involved in this project for their recommendation of a 
scope of work. 

Commissioner McCrea suggested that a single firm be paid to 
prepare a scope of work and then that scope of work be put 
out for bids. 



82-194 



Commissioner McCrea moved to retain the firm of Environmental 
Impact Planning Corporation (EIP) for the limited purpose of 
preparing a scope of work that can be presented to this 
Commission and then put out for bid for the preparation of an 
environmental impact report on proposed additions to the 
Hetch Hetchy System. Staff is directed to work with EIP to 
develop a process that will ensure that the definition of the 
scope of work involves all of the parties who are potentially 
interested in this project. If in the opinion of staff and 
the opinion of EIP an arbiter would provide beneficial input, 
such s>- 1 be included in the process. Commissioner Lenvin 
secondt The motion was unanimously adopted. 



*********** 

At 5:00 P.M. the meeting was recessed. 

At 5:15 P.M. the meeting was reconvened. 

Resolution No. 82-0383 - Items 8 and 9 - Consideration of 
revisions to Municipal Railway fares and transfer policy. 
(Continued from meeting of August 24, 1982) 

Commissioner Sanger moved to reduce the price of the adult 
Fast pass to $21.00, and to communicate to the Board of 
Supervisors this Commission's continuing position, expressed 
in previous fare proposals, that the Board of Supervisors 
should increase the Senior Fare, but without such an 
increase, the Commission does not see fit to transmit the 
Fast Pass reduction until the Board gives some indication 
that it is willing to increase the Senior Fare, and 
indicates the amount of the increase. Following discussion, 
he amended the motion to restrict the use of transfers to one 
direction only for the completion of a single trip. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. 

Commissioner McCrea amended the motion to provide for a change 
in the transfer policy, on a six months trial basis, to 
restrict the use of transfers to a single use in such a manner 
so that the transfer can not be used for a return trip. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded the amendment. 

President Flynn requested Mr. Jed to report on the financial 
impact of a $21.00 Fast Pass. Mr. Jed replied that the $21.00 
price would reduce revenue by approximately $2.7 million. 
This would place the Municipal Railway in an unfavorable position 
with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) in regards 
to the 33% farebox requirement for AB-1107 funds. Current 
revenue projections place us at the 33% level now. Reducing 
the Fast Pass will cause MTC to stop distributing this year's 
AB-1107 money. The year started with an allocation of 
approximately $15 million of AB-1107 money from MTC. After 
the passage of SB-1335, MTC chose to substitute $8 million of 
1335 for 1107. So we are now in the position of having $7 
million of AB-1107 money in our operating budget, and the 
additional $8 million is still in the region. We will be 
eligible to use it either for capital or operating expenses 
probably next year. 



fl?-1 QS 



Commissioner Sanger expressed the opinion that San Francisco 
is justified in seeking a waiver of the 33% farebox require- 
ment. 

On the motion to reduce the Fast Pass to $21.00, and restrict 
the use of transfers, Commissioner Sanger voted "aye", 
Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, McCrea and Hsieh voted "no". 
The motion was lost. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to table reducing the Fast Pass. 
Commissioner Hsieh seconded. C( tiissioners Flynn, Lenvin, 
McCrea and Hsieh voted "aye". v. .nmissioner Sanger voted "no" 

Commissioner McCrea moved to change the transfer policy to 
a one use transfer and restrict it to no return trip, for a 
period of six months. Commissioner Hsieh seconded. On the 
question, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea and Hsieh voted "aye". 
Commissioners Lenvin and Sanger voted "no".

COMMUNICATIONS 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that all communications regarding 
substitute cable car service for lines 5 9 -POWELL /MASON and 
60-POWELL/HYDE be filed separately; and that a summary be provided 
to the Commission in two months. 

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar announced that appointments had been made from the newly 
certified Civil Service Transit Manager III list. The following 
Transit Manager Ill's were presented: Diane Nygaard, Angelo Figone, 
Barbara Brown, George Newkirk and Jim Isenberg. Mr. Sklar said 
that Richard Sinigiani was part of this group but he has moved up 
to Deputy General Manager, Operations. 

********* 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial Management, 
PUC , distributed copies of a "Mailgram" he had received from Boeing 
Vertol advising that the company had received an offer for purchase 
of nine light rail vehicles and would like to pursue this potential 
sale. They inquired as to whether the Public Utilities Commission is 
willing to relinguish its right of first refusal on these cars. 

Mr. Jed said that he recommends that the Commission relinguish its 
right of first refusal on these cars because we do not have the finances 
or the immediate service need to exercise this right. The Massechusetts 
Bay Transit Authority is willing to pay Boeing Vertol $220,000.00 per 
car, as is, delivery not included. If we purchased the cars and 
modified them to our needs, we would have to spend between $600,100 
and $750,000 per car. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved to accept the staff recommendation, Commissione 
McCrea seconded. Commissioner Sanger stated that this matter has not 
been reviewed by the City Attorney, nor has staff presented written 
documentation covering all the issues involved. On the question, 
Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin, McCrea and Hsieh voted "aye". Commissioner 
Sanger voted "no" .

RESOLUTION No. 82-0425 — Holding in abeyance implementation of the 
transfer policy adopted in Resolution No. 82-0383. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to hold in abeyance implementation of the 
transfer policy adopted in Resolution No. 82-383, adopted September 
14, 1982; and to direct staff to report within 60 days on possible 
alternatives and provisions for control of transfer abuse. Commissioner 
Lenvin seconded the motion and expressed the opinion that no change 
in transfer policy is possible until the fare impact and Fast Pass 
impact is reviewed. The motion was unanimously adopted. 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Sanger stated that letters had been received from the 
Eureka Valley Merchants Association and the Eureka Valley Promotion 
Association along with a petition supporting extension of the 8-MARKET 
line and requesting that the Commission reconsider its decision not 
to complete the project. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to rescind the action taken September 14, 1982 
regarding construction of a new No. 8-MARKET loop, hold in abeyance all 
construction and reconstruction of either the proposed loop or the 
existing loop, and direct staff to conduct another public meeting in 
the neighborhood inviting both proponents and opponents and bring the 
matter back to the Commission for final decision. Commissioner Lenvin 
seconded. This motion was tabled. 

- - 
Commissioner Sanger questioned the inclusion of a third unit at Kirkwood 
powerhouse in the environmental assessment of potential Hetch Hetchy 
projects. Mr. Dean Coffey, General Manager Hetch Hetchy Water and 
Power, replied that the National Park Service has informed him that 
they will oppose any partial development within the park until the 
City has prepared a plan indicating the ultimate development of the 
Tuolumne River. 

********** 

RESOLUTION Nos . 82-0408 and 82-0409 - Awarding Contracts MR-830 
and MR-832, Respectively. 

Mr. McMorris Dow, Utilities General Counsel, stated that protests have 
been re :eived from the second low bidder on each contract and also 
from thj low bidder justifying his position. He advised the Commission 
that the low bid must be rejected, in each case, as not being responsive 
to the bid call, for failure to state a goal for women apprentices in 
the employment. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, on the advice of the City Attorney's office, 
to reject the low bid on contracts MR-830 and MR-832 and award to 
the second low bidder on each contract. The motion was unanimously 
adopted. 

********* 
RETURNING TO INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS 

Mr. Oral Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC , reported 
that no construction work has taken place on either the old loop or 
the new loop for the 8-MARKET line since the last Commission meeting. 



82-205 



Commissioner Sanger moved to rescind Resolution No. 82-0386 
(regarding removal of the construction on the new terminal 
loop for the 8-MARKET line and reconstruction of the old 
terminal loop) , to hold in abeyance all work on the 8-MARKET 
terminal loop and to direct staff to hold another meeting in 
the neighborhood to discuss the matter and return to the 
Commission for a final decision. 

Commissioner Lenvin seconded. On the question, Commissioners 
Flynn, Lenvin, Sanger and Hsieh voter 1 "aye", Commissioner McCrea 
voted "no". Resolution No 82-0429 ; adopted. 

********* 

Resolution No. 82-0424 - Approving draft of the transit advertising 
Request for Proposals and the proposed advertising agreement. 

Commissioner McCrea questioned why the minimum amount (of $600,000) 
is not subject to bid. Mr. Sklar replied that setting a minimum 
and then bidding only the percentage over the minimum facilitates 
determination of the high bidder and eliminates making a judge- 
ment as to which bid combination of minimum and percentage will 
provide the most revenue. 

Commissioner Sanger said that he felt staff was eliminating an 
option which any bidder should be able to propose. Commissioner 
Lenvin suggested allowing firms to bid the percentage only, 
as recommended by staff, and an alternate proposal bidding both 
the minimum and the percentage. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to exclude advertising on the front 
and rear of diesel vehicles. Commissioner Hsieh seconded. On 
the question, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea and Hsieh voted "aye", 
Commissioners Lenvin and Sanger voted "no". The motion carried. 

Mr. Victor Bacigalupi, a potential bidder, pointed out that the 
Request for Proposals restricts the qualifications to firms with 
transit advertising experience. President Flynn directed staff 
to amend the qualification to include other advertising experience. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to amend the request for proposals to 
provide the bidder the opportunity to submit an alternate form of 
proposal in addition to the base bid proposal. Commissioner 
Sanger seconded. The motion was unaminously adop;ed. 

Commissioner Sanger inquired as to the revenue implications of not 
selling advertising on the front and rear of diesel coaches. Mr. 
Sklar calculated the amount to be 25% of current advertising 
revenue. Commissioner Sanger requested reconsideration of the 
decision to exclude advertising on the front and rear of diesel 
buses. On the question to reconsider, Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin 
and Sanger voted "aye". Commissioners McCrea and Hsieh voted "no". 

Commissioner Sanger moved to rescind the motion deleting front and 
rear advertising displays. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. On the 
question, Commissioners Flynn, Lenvin and Sanger voted "aye", 
Commissioners McCrea and Hsieh voted "no". The motion carried. 



82-206 



Mr. Sklar recommended moving toward using contact paper for 
ads on the Advance Design Buses and other buses with compa- 
tible exterior surfaces, rather than mounting them in frames 
Commissioner Sanger so moved, Commissioner Lenvin seconded. 
The motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved approval of the calendar item 
subject to Commissioner Lenvin 's approval of the redrafted 
language in the documents. Commissioner McCrea seconded. 
Resolution No. 82-0424 was unanimously adopted. 



********* 

President Flynn announced that the Commission met in executive 
session September 22, 1982 and voted to hire Mr. Harold H. 
Geissenheimer as General Manager Municipal Railway, effective 
November 1, 19 82. 

President Flynn said that he had requested staff to report on 
the complaints received regarding substitute service during 
the cable car reconstruction period. Ms. Susan Chelone, Transit 
Planner, presented the complaints received by staff, to date. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that staff explore the possibility 
of jitneys providing service on California Street. Commissioner 
Sanger requested information as to what a maximum occupancy limit 
would be for diesel buses climbing steep hills and would such a 
limit be enforceable. 

President Flynn directed that consideration of substitute service 
for the 61- CALIFORNIA line be calendared for October 12, 1982 
and that all complaints regarding the route of the 5 8 - LEAVENWORTH 
line be referred to the Board of Supervisors.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar introduced Ms. Jeri L. Mersky and Mr. Alan W. Browning 
as the staff members jointly selected by the Transport Workers 
Union and management to facilitate the implementation of the 
Joint Labor /Management Board. 

*********** 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

President Flynn presented Mr. Sklar with a gift of a model cable 
car to commemorate Mr. Sklar "gripping" the last cable car to 
operate on the line before the system was closed September 22, 1982 
for rehabilitation. This was a personal gift from the Members of 
the Commission and Mr. Maurice Klebolt. 

*********** 

Resolution No. 82-0443 - Approving substitute bus service for 
the 61-CALIFORNIA cable car line. 

Mr. Sklar presented three alternatives for providing bus service 
on California Street, using buses from the under utilized 58- 
LEAVENWORTH line, and in some cases, additional vehicles. 

Mr. John J. Cope, President, Nob Hill Association, stated that 
bus service is needed on California Street for the elderly 
residents in the area, the 1,000 hotel employees working various 
shifts and the hotel guests. 

Ms. Patricia Heland, a resident of California Street, said that 
she works in the financial district and needs transportation to 
go to and from work, the downtown retail district and for grocery 
shopping . 

Another resident of the area said that it is impossible to board 
parallel lines because they are already crowded. 

Ms. Margaret Berger, a self employed resident of California 
Street, said that she has staggered her hours in an effort to 
board the 1-CALIFORNIA line. However, she still needs transporta- 
tion for shopping trips. 

Mr. Bill Crawford, representing the Hotel Employees Association, 
spoke in favor of providing immediate service on California 
Street. 



82-214 



Commissioner Sanger moved to approve staff recommendation, 
Alternative 1, to provide diesel bus service on the 61- 
CALIFORNIA line with three coaches from the 5 8 -LEAVENWORTH 
line. Implementation shall be as soon as possible. Controls 
shall be established by the Municipal Railway, Maintenance 
Department regarding the number of passengers per coach, and 
staff shall report in 60 days regarding the impact on the 
condition of the fleet of operating diesel buses on the 61- 
CALIFORNIA line. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. She said 
that this is a temporary measure which the Commission will 
review at a later date. Resolution No. 82-0443 was 
unanimously adopted. 

*********** 

Resolution No. 82-0446 - Rejecting all bids on Hetch Hetchy 
Contract No. 685. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the Commission consider the 
award of this contract in an Executive Session with the 
Utilities General Counsel, immediately following this meeting. 

Mr. David Dooley, attorney representing Steiny & Company, Inc. 
the apparent low bidder, said that failure to complete attach- 
ment I and pages 9 and 9A was a technical oversight. Steiny 
intends to use a minority supplier, Bayside Electric Distri- 
butor. In addition, if the union supplies female apprentices 
they will be used on the job. 

Mr. George Schlesinger, President, Kingston Contracting, Inc., 
the third low bidder, stated that the low bidder had 5 days 
to correct their oversight. 

Mr. Robert Spinardi, representing St. Francis Electric 
Service, the second low bidder, stated that his firm did not 
intend to use apprentices since the law requires that an 
apprentice must be accompanied by a journeyman and the nature 
of this job only requires one man per work site. 

This matter was continued to Executive Session. 

*********** 

Item No. 17 - Status Report on Youth Passes. 

Mr. Harold Guetersloh, Supervising Fiscal Officer, PUC, reported 
that a number of private schools entered into a contract to sell 
Youth Passes. Public school officials refused to sell the passes 
and said that the school did not want to be responsible for them. 
Verbal agreements were reached with the Student Councils of the 
High Schools and Middle Schools to act as vendors for a 
commission of 25 cents per pass. The Assistant Superintendent 
decided that passes should be sold for $5.25 with the extra 
amount going into each Student Council's fund. Contracts were 
not executed because the students are minors, not adults. 

President Flynn expressed the opinion that the Student Councils 
should not be permitted to sell Youth Passes for more than $5.00. 
If the schools won't sell passes for $5.00 the passes should be 
withdrawn. 



82-215 



Commissioner Sanger requested that the Utilities General 
Counsel explore the possibility of contracting with the 
Student Councils so that they will be subject to the 
same rules that apply to other vendors. 

Commissioners Lenvin requested that this matter be 
continued for two weeks, and that a letter be sent to 
the Board of Education expressing the Commissions 
concerns, and seeking the Board's assistance in holding 
the pass to $5.00. 

*********** 

Item No. 21 - Discussion of Fiscal Year 1981-82 Performance 
Monitoring Reports. 

Ms. Anne Kronenberg, Acting Manager, Bureau of Performance 
Monitoring, stated that the reports contain an overview of 
the accomplishments of the last three years and a projection 
for the next two years. 

Commissioner Lenvin noted that there are problems with motor 
coach availability and light rail vehicle (LRV) reliability. 
She requested a report at the next meeting on these problems. 

Commissioner Sanger requested that the Commission receive 
regular reports on the status of the diesel fleet. 

*********** 

Resolution No. 82-0453 - Adopting a procedure for the 
Environmental Impact Report on proposed additions to the 
Hetch Hetchy system, and approving the selection of the firm 
of Environmental Impact Planning Corporation to undertake 
the work. 

Mr. Oral Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, 
PUC, stated that staff is requesting that the Commission 
confirm the Selection Committee's recommendation of the firm 
of Environmental Impact Planning Corporation for the prepara- 
tion of an Environmental Impact Report on proposed additions 
to the Hetch Hetchy system. Staff is also recommending that 
the work be undertaken in two phases. Phase 1 would be to 
prepare a detailed scope of work and Phase 2 would be to 
engage in the work identified in Phase 1 . 

Commissioner Sanger moved to adopt the procedure recommended 
by the General Manger of Public Utilities in his memorandum 
to the Commission, dated October 12, 1982, numbers 1 through 
5, for the Environmental Impact Report. Commission Lenvin 
seconded. Resolution No. 82-0453 was adopted. 

*********** 



82-216 



At 3:50 P.M. the meeting was recessed and the Commission went 
into an Executive Session with counsel. 

At 4:32 P.M. the meeting was reconvened. 

President Flynn announced that the Commission had adopted 
Resolution No. 82-0446 in Executive Session, rejecting all 
bids for Hetch Hetchy Contract No. 685, and authorizing 
readvertisement .

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Douglas Wright, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Administra- 
tion, PUC, stated that the Metropolitan Transportation Commission 
has requested a letter of support which would allow CALTRANS , in 
cooperation with Southern Pacific Transportation Company, to 
undertake an alternative design of the Spear Street building 
which would allow two design options to go forward for 
capital bids. One of which would not preclude the future 
operation of CALTRANS service to Rincon Annex. 

Commissioner Sanger moved, Commissioner Hsieh seconded, to 
authorize the President to communicate to the Metropolitan 
Transportation Commission this Commission's support for the 
use of $150,000 of regionally allocated capital funds to 
undertake an alternative design study associated with the 
extension of the Southern Pacific commute service to downtown. 
Resolution No. 82-0455 was unanimously adopted. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0472 -- Retaining the present location of the 
terminal loop for the No. 8-MARKET line. 

Mr. Peter Straus, Director of Planning, reported that staff 
conducted a public meeting on October 21, 1982, on the location 
of the terminal loop for the 8-MARKET line, as directed by the 
Commission. No clear consensus emerged. He said that of 
approximately 100 people in attendance, 78 percent opposed the 
20th and Diamond Streets route, 63 percent had problems with 
the existing loop, however, 70 percent preferred reconstructing 
the loop at the existing location. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments. 

Mr. John Ward, Principal of Douglas School, spoke in opposition 
to both routing the bus around the school and the proposed 
terminus in front of the school. 

Mr. Robert Dressier, 4324 20th Street, opposed routing the bus 
on 20th Street because the wires and poles would spoil the 
aesthetics of this residential neighborhood. 

Mr. Peter Patou, 2288 Market Street, supported the present 
route. He suggested installing a scramble signal system to 
relieve the congestion at 18th and Castro Streets. 

Mr. Michael Cahalan, 261 Diamond Street, opposed the 20th and 
Diamond Streets route on the basis that no environmental impact 
report was prepared. 

Mr. Randall P. Palenski, the parent of a student attending 
Douglas School, spoke in opposition to routing the bus around 
Douglas School. 

Mr. Don Mackey, President Eureka Valley Merchants Association, 
said that the organization is disappointed that a solution is not 
forthcoming to the problem of the 8-MARKET loop. Under the 
circumstances, he supported retaining the loop in its present 
location, as a short term solution, while continuing to work 
for a long term solution. 



8 2-22 -1 



Mrs. Sidney Kaploff, 244 Diamond Street, supported a scramble 
system for 18th and Castro Streets, with no left turn at Castro 
Street. 

Mrs. Martin, 182 Diamond Street, objected to a bus going by Douglas 
School and terminating there where it is quite dark at night. 
She also objected to the existing loop, and suggested a new route 
via Castro, 19th, Collingwood to Market Street. 

Mr. James Jones, 4121 19th Street, stated that he has a business 
located where Muni proposes to place the terminal. He objected to 
the staff proposal and supported either the existing route or 
Mrs. Martin's suggestion. 

Mr. D. David Davies suggested that if the left turn could be 
eliminated at Castro Street a great deal of conjestion would be 
eliminated 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President, CAP/Trans, suggested retaining 
the loop where it is until it can be reviewed for a long range 
solution. 

Mr. Vaughn Taylor, President, Eureka Valley Promotional Association, 
said that they still support the 20th Street loop or another 
alternative . 

Mr. Robert Hunter, 3909 17th Street, said that he takes issue with 
the claim of improper notice when approximately 100 meetings were 
held in 1978 and 1979. 

Ms. Barbara Hopkins, President of the parents group, opposed the 
20th Street loop and terminus at Douglas School. She supported 
the bus being extended to 25th Street. 

Mr. Bill Malone suggested routing the bus via 17th, Diamond to Market 
Street. 

Commissioner Lenvin stated that this is a most difficult decision 
for the Commission to make. She said that she has never seen 
a community so divided on an issue. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to abandon construction on the 20th 
Street loop and to reconstruct the existing loop. Commissioner 
Lenvin seconded. Resolution No. 82-0472 was unanimously adopted. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0475 - Adopting a policy that Municipal 
Railway passes will not be distributed to any organization that 
sells them for more than face value. 

President Flynn opened the meeting for public comments. 

Patrick Baker, Student Body President of Galileo High School, 
said that the $5.25 charge for Youth Passes, (which have a face 
value of $5.00), is not unreasonable or a hardship and it 
supports student activities. 

Carl Nicolari, Editor of the "Eagle" at George Washington High 
School, stated that 1,792 passes were sold at Washington with the 
profit (50 cents. per pass) going to a special fund for the entire 
student body. 



12-22 5 



Michael Donner, Secretary of the Lowell High School Executive 
Council, said that various clubs in the school have requested 
$26,000 to fund their activities for this year. Money received 
from Youth Pass sales will be distributed for these activities. 
The students work hard to sell the passes and to account for 
the funds. 

Joanna Pineda, Student Body President, Lincoln High School, 
stated that students did not object to paying a little extra 
once they knew that the money was going into the student body 
fund . 

Melissa Martinez, Student Body President at McAteer High School, 
said if the schools don't sell Youth Passes, Muni would have to 
rely on retail stores which don't want additonal student traffic 
in and out . 

Angelina Maria Gilyard, Student Body President at Wallenberg High 
School stated that the $5.25 price allows both the high schools 
and the elementary schools to receive 25 cents per pass sold. 

Commissioner McCrea commented that the School District has known 
since March of this year that Youth Passes would be in effect in 
October but has refused to take responsibility for them. Approxi- 
mately 100 private schools have contracted to sell the passes at 
$5.00. 

A parent questioned the legality of one City department sub- 
contracting the services of another City department for a profit. 
She suggested that the Municipal Railway could hire people to 
sell passes for the $15,000 per month the students are receiving. 

Ms. Joyce Hall said that her child goes to private school and 
they have no problems with the passes which the school sells for 
$5.00. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt said that he has been a vendor of Fast Passes 
since they were first made available. The commission was only 
10 cents per pass when they sold for $11.00. It was not raised 
to 25 cents until the price of the pass was raised to $16.00. 

Mrs. Christina Topola, President of Lincoln High School Parent 
Teachers Association, spoke in favor of the $5.25 price for Youth 
Passes . 

Commissioner Sanger pointed out that there is a legal problem in 
that the Board of Supervisors sets the sale price for the public, 
not the Public Utilities Commission or the Board of Education. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to establish as this Commission's policy, 
that Municipal Railway passes will not be distributed to any 
organization that sells them for more than the face value. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. The policy was unanimously adopted.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Sklar introduced Mr. Harold H. Geissenheimer , General Manager of 
the Municipal Railway / who came aboard November 1, 1982. The 
Commission extended a warm welcome to the new General Manager. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar requested direction from the Commission regarding future 
negotiation for the sale of Hetch Hetchy power. Commissioner 
Lenvin requested that this matter be discussed in executive 
session with counsel immediately following this meeting. 

************* 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, PUC, stated that the California Transportation 
Commission (CTC) will be considering a position on pending 
federal legislation regarding future transit funding. The CTC 
is seeking a unified State of California position which would 
benefit all transit systems in the State. 

Commission Lenvin moved to support the CTC staff recommendations 
with the following exceptions: 

(1) this Commission supports the user fees as additional revenues, 

(2) this Commission supports the continuation of operating 
subsidies; and 

(3) operating subsidies should be based upon a service oriented 
formula . 

Commissioner Sanger seconded. Resolution No. 82-0480 was adopted. 

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF OLD BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner Sanger requested a progress report on the Market Street 
Design/Planning Study at the next Commission meeting, with 
recommendations from staff regarding the open issues remaining 
from the joint meeting with the Planning Commission and the 
Director of Public Works. 

************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

President Flynn requested that a report from the Bureau of 

Finance and discussion of alternative routing for the 58-Leavenworth 

line be calendared for the November 23, 1932 meeting. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0492 - Regarding passenger facilities for the 
Cable Car terminus at Powell and Market Streets. 

Mr. Lynn Pio, Project Coordinator for the Cable Car Rehabilitation 
Program, presented a proposal to construct a permanent passenger 
waiting shelter along the east side of Powell Street, between 
Market and Ellis Streets, with restroom facilities for cable car 
operators . 



82-233 



Mr. Bernard Averbuch, Executive Director of the Market Street 
Development Project, spoke in opposition to the proposal based upon 
the experience with the temporary shelter. He stated that the 
merchants favor routing the waiting line, beginning at the boarding 
point on the east side of Powell Street, then around the turntable 
and along the west side of Powell Street. 

Mr. Edward Lawson, representing the Greater Union Square Association, 
said that his organization endorsed the original temporary shelter. 
However, they have since changed their minds. He said that lack 
of supervision caused the greatest problems. He suggested installing 
colored pavement and a few instructional signs to guide passengers. 

Mr. William LeFevre , General Manager of Woolworths, stated that 
the proposed shelter would block two of his three main entrances, 
and the structures overhang would be only six feet from the building. 
The proposed operator restroom would be in front of one of the 
store's entrances. He suggested that restroom facilities be 
placed underground and maintained by the City. 

Mr. John Melani, representing the Day and Night Branch of Bank 
of America, said that bank customers complained about the con- 
gestion caused by the temporary shelter. He favored the use of color 
coded sidewalks. 

Mr. Paul Kullukian, of the Cable Car Steak House, opposed the 
shelter as proposed. He supported the City building restroom 
facilities because the operators have been using his restaurant 
for this purpose. 

Mr. Harvey Nalbandian, owner of the flower stand, favored a color 
coded sidewalk with passenger loading information in bronze 
letters in several different languages. 

Mr. William Taylor, General Manager of the Powell Hotel, supported 
leaving Powell Street open, without any additional structures, 
and having a simple line around the turntable and along the west 
side of Powell Street. 

Mr. Randy Johnson, representing McDonald Corporation, stated any 
structure would block merchants. He pointed out that cable car 
riders are not protected from the elements while riding the cable 
car so there is no need to build a shelter for them. 

Mr. Norman Rolfe, a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee for 
the Cable Car Rehabilitation Program, stated that the proposed 
shelter makes an amusement park ride out of transit service. He 
expressed the opinion that lack of supervision of the cable car 
operators regarding schedule adherence is the cause of passenger 
congestion at the terminal. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAPTRANS , opposed construction 
of a shelter and pointed out that no concern has been shown for 
the sheltering of cable car passengers for the 22 minute trip over 
the hill. 

Commissioner Sanger moved not to construct a shelter structure as 
proposed; to establish a system of crowd control; place ticket 
machines at both ends of the block; provide for a linear line 
around the turntable and along the west side of Powell Street in 



82-234 



materials compatible with those used in the Market Street 
Beautif ication Project; and provide restrooms for both 
operators and the public. The revised design is to be 
submitted to the Commission after review by the merchants in the 
area. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. Resolution No. 82-0492 
was adopted. 

************** 

Resolution No. 82-0495 — Awarding Municipal Railway Contract No. 
MR-823. 

Mr. Stephen McKae, attorney for ICONCO of California, the apparent 
low bidder, said that there was no goal for women apprentices 
stated in the bid because no apprentices would be hired due to 
the nature of the work and the number of persons required. 

In reply to questions by the Commission, Mr. McMorris Dow, 
Utilities General Counsel, stated that the defect in ICONCO ' s 
bid cannot be waived. 

On motion of Commissioner McCrea, seconded by Commissioner Lenvin, 
Contract No. MR-823 was awarded to Homer J. Olsen, Inc., the 
second low bidder and the low bid and all other bids were rejected. 

*************** 

Resolution No. 82-0498 -- Approving the selection of the firm of 
J. E. Greig, Inc. to conduct a management study of the Peninsula 
watershed. 

Commissioner Lenvin moved, Commissioner McCrea seconded, to allow 
Commissioner Lenvin to abstain from voting on this item. The motion 
was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that Mr. Greig' s proposal focused on 
forest management. He questioned whether the issue of security 
would be addressed in this study. Mr. Edward Fonseca, Suburban 
Operations Manager, replied that security is included in the 
scope of work. Commissioner Sanger stated that prevention of' 
vandalism, security and management of roads should be made part 
of a subsequent request for proposals for consultant services. 

*************** 

Item No. 19 -- Regarding selecting a firm for management, planning 
and financial analysis services, on an as needed basis. 

President Flynn announced that this item has been taken off 
calendar. Staff will solicit new proposals for the work. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed the opinion that hiring a con- 
sultant is not a cost-effective method of obtaining the desired 
services. Routine and permanent functions of the Bureau of 
Financial Management should be performed by permanent staff. 

Mr. Jed replied that the department has been unable to fill 
four existing budgeted positions for six months. He said 
that he wants to proceed with this because there are specific 
requests that go beyond our normal resource h"

Resolution No. 82-0500 -- Authorizing a Professional Services 
contract with Smith Dawson Associates, Inc. 

President Flynn requested that staff provide quarterly reports 
on the progress of this contract.

Votes: Ayes - Flynn, Lenvin, McCrea, Hsieh 



Copies of the above resolution are on file in the

Commission . 

************* 



Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Bureau of Financial 
Management, Public Utilities Commission, presented a status 
report of activities of the Transfer Policy Committee as well 
as his own recommendations and possible alternatives to the 
current transfer policies. He stated that the Municipal 
Railway's revenue was lower than projections. It is believed 
that this was due at least in part to the tampering of fareboxes, 
and some looting. Therefore, a series of procedural changes 
have been made during the past months in the area of collections, 
and in transfer handling. 

Following a series of meetings and investigations conducted by 

the Transfer Policy Committee (TPC) , the Committee recommended that 

the current transfer policy not be changed for some time until 

the results of the other policies on collection handling as 

well as transfer distribution handling can be studied to determine what 

their effect on the revenue would be. 

Two points that the Committee felt strongly about were (1) that any 
change to the transfer policy have adequate implementation time, 
and that both the public as well as our operators are fully informed 
of the policy, and (2) emphasis on the enforcement policy. 

Mr. Jed stated that he understands the position that the TPC has 
taken, but he would recommend at this time the single use transfer 
policy, so that transfers will be taken out of circulation and 
should result in some increase in revenue. As a point of information 
he stated that we do have a revenue shortfall this year and we also 
have a problem of 33% return at the farebox, and therefore, this 
change in the transfer policy should bring us closer to resolving 
the farebox problem. 



82-238 



Mr. Richard Sklar, General Manager of Public Utilities, said 
that the idea of enforcement at the operator level is impractical. 
It would result in controversies with patrons and riders, holding 
up busloads of patrons, would require full radio back-up system, 
and so forth. He does, however, feel that there is a significant 
amount of transfer abuse as well as cash payment abuse in the 
farebox, and strongly recommended that action be taken to change 
the transfer policy, to a single uso transfer with or without 
some provision for the third trip rider. 

Mr. Jed said that the reason the Transfer Policy Committee did 
not recommend a single use transfer is that they felt that it was 
not as equitable as the current system, as in the instance of a 
rider requiring a ride on the third vehicle. However, it would 
be impossible to guarantee absolute equity across the board, and 
what a single use transfer would accomplish is that it would get 
more of our riders using the Fast Pass, which is the objective of 
our whole approach. 

Commissioner John Sanger expressed the view that he was in favor 
of the Transfer Policy Committee's recommendations--that more 
time is needed to assess the situation as a whole and the 
development of an enforcement policy. 

Commissioner Thomas Hsieh on the other hand felt that too much 
emphasis should not be placed on enforcement because then it 
would really become a police problem. He supported Mr. Jed's 
plan. 

Commissioner John Sanger was excused at 2:35 P.M. 

Commissioner Peter McCrea said that the multi-direction ride 
must be eliminated because it has been so flagrantly abused. It 
is his thought that sooner or later we will have to seriously 
consider charging for a second transfer and the mechanics of 
it and he therefore suggested that perhaps after proper notice 
that we ought to consider these matters at the December 14th 
meeting. 

Commissioner McCrea then made a motion to adopt a single use 
transfer, which was seconded by Commissioner Lenvin.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Richard Sklar requested permission to sign an agreement 
permitting the Christmas Festival, taking place at Fort Mason 
under the sponsorship of Mr. Bill Graham, to use motorized 
cable car No. 62, for display purposes, as they will be 
soliciting funds for the Save the Cable Car Project. 

Commissioner Hsieh moved to adopt a resolution authorizing the 
General Manager of Public Utilities to enter into an Agreement 
with Bill Graham Presents to provide the cable car. Commissioner 
Sanger seconded. Resolution No. 82-0526 was adopted. 

************** 



82-246 



Mr. Sklar discussed reductions on parallel service now that the 
Muni Metro System is operating on weekends. He stated that 
running this parallel and unreduced service is going to cost 
Muni $200,000 over the next year, an amount that is not in the 
budget. He strongly urged the Commission to take immediate 
action to resubmit this item to the Board of Supervisors. 

Commissioner McCrea moved adoption of a resolution to partially 
discontinue weekend service on Municipal Railway lines 7-Haight, 
26-Valencia and 31-Balboa since the Muni Metro System is now 
operating on weekends. Commissioner Sanger seconded. 
Resolution No. 82-0527 was adopted.

INTRODUCTION OF OLD BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Vice President Lenvin inquired to staff the status of the Muni 
advertising contract and requested that for the meeting on 
December 14th that they have an extension agreement of the 
existing contract be calendared. 



************* 

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS BY COMMISSIONERS 

Commissioner McCrea requested a report on the No. 24-line 
relative to the contractor's failure to provide the schedule. 
He feels that failure to provide the schedule is just as 
important as failing to provide the work. Without a schedule 
we have no basis upon which we can judge the contractor's 
performance and hold him accountable to it. 

Vice President Lenvin suggested that this matter be handled 
through the City Attorney's office. 

************** 

Commissioner Sanger made reference to a communication received 
from Canon Kip Community House indicating that they are offering 
reduced service and making reference to "inequities in our 
present contract" . 

Mr. Sklar stated that he has advised the Mayor that there will 
be a very detailed report on the non-performance on the part 
of Canon Kip and it may involve litigation. He said he would 
furnish the Commission with a report shortly. 

************** 

Item No. 9 - Presentation of staff report regarding cable car 
substitute service on Line 58 -LEAVENWORTH . 

Ms. Susan Chelone made a brief presentation pointing out the 

three areas where staff has made recommendations: (1) Post/Sutter 

versus Pine/Bush, (2) Pacific versus Vallejo and (3) Larkin versus 

Polk. 



82-247 



Vice President Lenvin stated that staff had provided the members 
of the Commission copies of written communications, and petitions, 
as well as letters forwarded to us from the Mayor's office. There- 
fore, the public testimony was limited to three persons speaking 
pro and three persons speaking con on the new proposals which 
was presented by Ms. Chelone on the Line 58. 

Mr. Ygnacio Bonilla, 1080 Chestnut Street, resident of Russian 
Hill for some 25 years, representing over 500 petitioners, many 
of them elderly, infirmed, and who depend on public transportation, 
favors having the buses on Larkin Street. 

Ms. Lucy Stofle, 2452 Polk Street, representing Polk Street 
Citizens for Action, said granted the buses do present some noise 
and pollution problems, but she would like to see the buses 
running on Larkin Street. 

Mr. John Cobra, a member of the Russian Hill Neighbors, speaking 
in behalf of the president, Kirk Miller, said that he supports 
having the bus on Larkin Street, that it will be helpful for the 
people living on Russian Hill. 

The following spoke for the opposition: 

Dr. Fred Bruni, 1009 Francisco, transmitted a petition containing 
some one thousand names together with some colored photographs. 
He expressed the view that the curve at Larkin and Francisco is 
very hazardous and that it would be very dangerous to run buses 
down Francisco Street. He recommended leaving the buses down on 
Polk Street. 

Miss Bullard, 1445 Vallejo Street, representing the Russian Hill 
Forum, reiterated the hazard at the Larkin and Francisco curve. 
She said we need more buses on Polk Street. 

Mr. John Lachman, representing the Russian Hill Association, 
expressed the opinion that we do not need the buses on Larkin, 
that the transit needs of the people on Russian Hill are 
adequate . 

Commissioner Sanger stated that this is going to be a temporary 

substitute service for approximately a year and a half, and it 

is his hope that during this period of the cable car reconstruction 

that the neighbors would be willing to share part of the burden. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to operate motor coach lines along 

the following routes: 

82-PACIFIC: From Pacific and Van Ness via Van Ness 
Washington, Polk, Pacific, Powell, Broadway, Battery; 
return via Pacific to Van Ness. 

58-LEAVENWORTH: From Fifth Street North and Market via 
Fifth Street North, Market, Turk, Taylor, Pine, 
Leavenworth, Vallejo, Larkin, Francisco, Polk, Beach 
to Taylor; return via Taylor, North Point, Polk, 
Vallejo, Leavenworth, California, Hyde, Bush, Mason, 
Eddy to Fifth Street North. 

25-SAN BRUNO to Hyde and Chestnut, peak hour extension, 
will not operate while the 58-LEAVENWORTH is in 
service. ' 

Commissioner McCrea seconded. Resolution No. 82-0516 was 
adopted . 

************* 



Item No. 10 - Extension of the 33-ASHBURY trolley coach line. 

Ms. Susan Chelone made the presentation, explaining that there is 
a disproportionately large gap in the north-south Muni service in 
the Richmond District between Masonic and Sixth Avenues and this 
staff proposal is a way to resolve this problem. The proposal 
would extend the line up Stanyan Street, across Fulton, along 
Arguello, to California Street. Funding for this project was 
approved by the State last Thursday. It is anticipated that 
start-up operations would be some time early 1984. 

Public testimony followed. 

John Kalin, 763 Arguello Boulevard, said he questions the need of 
an extension. Line No. 21 was recently cut back and he suggested 
reinstituting that service and using the existing wires. 

Ms. Nancy Solomon, 309 Arguello, stated that she is concerned 
about the safety hazards on Arguello Street, because the street 
already has heavy traffic. She suggests using diesel buses on 
an experimental basis instead of spending a great deal of money 
on overhead wires. 

Ms. Frances Neer, 3365 Sacramento Street, representing Menorah 
Park Tenants Association, supports all of the extension proposal. 

Oskar Moe, 232 Parker, representing Stanyan-Fulton Street Association 
and Jordan Park Improvement Association, is for the No. 33 extension 
along Arguello. 

Ted Shaner, 30 Cornwall, in favor of the 33-extension as it will 
serve MediCal patients as Saint Mary's, Children's and the Marshall 
Hale Hospitals are all located along the route. 

Ms. Estelle McClelland, 548 Arguello, said she was concerned 
about having the buses on Arguello Boulevard because it is already 
congested with traffic, and that it would also create a parking 
problem. She therefore was opposed to the No. 33 extension. 

Cliff Chambers, representing Children's Hospital, St. Mary's and 
Marshall Hale Hospital as a transportation coordinator, said he 
was in favor of the extension because he feels it will better 
serve the patients, visitors, and the employees of these hospitals 
and at the same time it would reduce the parking and the traffic 
congestion . 

Mr. Klebolt, representing CapTrans, said he was in favor of the 
extension on Arguello. He also said he hoped that a standard 
which would compliment the boulevard would be utilized. 

Commissioner McCrea moved that the No. 33-ASHBURY Extension 
route be adopted as proposed by staff. Commissioner Sanger 
seconded. Resolution No. 82-0517 was adopted.

82-249 






Item No. 16 - Status of Market Street Design/Planning Study. 

Mr. Glenn Erickson, Market Street Coordinator, briefly summarized 
the actions which had taken place at the special joint meeting on 
August 24, 1982, together with the members of the Planning Com- 
mission and the Director of Public Works. On September 7 a draft 
resolution was sent to the Board of Supervisors asking them to 
amend the 1968 Market Street resolution on the two issues, the 
tracks and the boarding islands. To this date they have not 
scheduled any hearing on this matter. 

Commissioner Lenvin requested that a presentation of the preliminary 
design be calendared for the next meeting. 

************* 

Item No. 23 - First Quarter Performance Report—Fiscal Year 1982-83 

Ms. Anne Kronenberg, Acting Manager, Performance Monitoring, briefly 
summarized the activities of the departments and bureaus. She was 
very pleased to report that some 30,000 Muni maps were sold during 
this first quarter. 

The energy audits that were done last year resulted in a number of 
recommendations which will be implemented during this year. The 
contractors have been selected for the modifications and work in 
the Hall of Justice will be starting soon. 

The Materials Management System throughout Muni has been moving 
along. Work is in progress at this time at Woods and B.M.I.S. has 
been working closely to get that system up to speed. 

At an earlier meeting the Commissioners requested a monthly report 
of Muni's equipment availability and reliability. Ms. Kronenberg 
said that she is working with Mr. Geissenheimer on a format and 
you will probably be getting them from December on. 

************* 
Item No. 22 - Report on First Quarter Financial Status 

Mr. Leo Jed, Assistant General Manager, Finance, presented an 
overview of the First Quarter Financial Report and indicated 
certain areas that needed special attention: personnel expenditures 
at UEB and at Muni Railway with respect to fare revenues and 
expenditures .

REPORT OF THE GENERAL MANAGER 

Mr. Richard Sklar introduced a proposed resolution commending Mr. 
Joseph C. Houghteling on the occasion of his retirement for his 
outstanding contribution towards the betterment of public trans- 
portation during his eleven years of service on the San Francisco 
Bay Conservation and Development Commission and nine years of 
service on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Resolution 
No. 82-0529 was unanimously adopted. 

************* 

Mr. Sklar stated that if there were no objections staff would 
provide guidance to the Facilities Master Plan consultant, 
Wilbur Smith and Associates, as described in the draft letter 
which accompanied Mr. Douglas Wright, Assistant General Manager, 
Administration's, memorandum to the Commission dated December 
3, 1982. 

Commissioner Sanger said that the study implies that all PUC 
offices would ultimately be consolidated at 949 Presidio Avenue. 
He expressed the opinion that should the property at 425 Mason 
Street be sold and the proceeds used to fund consolidation 
of office space, such consolidation should occur in the Civic 
Center area to better accommodate the public. 



************* 



INTRODUCTION OF OLD BUSINESS 

Responding to a question by Commissioner Lenvin, Mr. Dean Coffey, 
General Manager, Hetch Hetchy Water and Power, said that the 
issue of charging market rates for power sold to certain City 
departments has not been resolved. He said a determination is 
needed for incorporation into a pending rate adjustment. 
Commissioner McCrea directed that staff meet with the Mayor's 
staff prior to the next rate adjustment to develop budget 
guidelines for next fiscal year, taking into consideration that 
it is this Commission's desire to charge full market rates 
wherever possible. 

On motion of Commissioner Sanger, seconded by Commissioner 
Lenvin, a public hearing on Hetch Hetchy power rates was set for 
the regular meeting of January 11, 1983. 

************* 

Commissioner Sanger commented that he would be on vacation at 
the time of the next Commission meeting which will be Mr. Sklar 's 
last meeting before he resigns. Therefore, he took this oppor- 
tunity to express his pleasure in the progress he has observed 
during Mr. Sklar' s tenure as General Manager of Public Utilities. 



************* 



INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS 

President Flynn stated that on December 7, 1982, at 3:05 P.M. he 
was on the No. 38-GEARY line, Coach No. 3115 when driver Carl 
Payne recovered a stolen wallet for a passenger after giving 
chase to the apparent guilty party. President Flynn directed 
that an acknowledgment be sent to Mr. Payne and a copy placed in 
his personnel file. 



************* 



PUBLIC HEARING — To consider modification to the schedule of 
rates, fares and charges of the San Francisco Municipal Railway. 

Mr. Anson Moran, Director of Budget Analysis, said that this 
matter was calendared subsequent to the Commission's meeting of 
November 22, 1982 for consideration of fixing a charge for a 
second transfer when the single use transfer is implemented. 
Staff previously recommended a $.25 charge for the second 
transfer. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to reconsider the Commission's action 
of November 22, 1982, restricting the use of transfers to a 
single use in one direction. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. The 
motion was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger pointed out that the motivation for adopting 
a single use transfer was to comply with the 33% farebox re- 
covery requirement for AB-1107 funding. He said there is not a 
clear indication that a single use transfer will enable the 
Municipal Railway to meet this requirement. In addition, 
Metropolitan Transportation Commission guidelines encourage the 
use of transfers to complete a one-way trip, including transfers 
between different transit operators. He said that there are 
plans to seek a revision by the State Legislature to AB-1107. 
He suggested waiting for the result of that effort before changing 
the transfer system. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that the single use transfer was approved 
in order to stop transfer abuse. The only way to deal with this 
problem is to remove transfers from circulation. The fact that 
the operator would physically collect transfers would increase the 
probability of the operator examining the transfer for validity. 
This would lead to increasing farebox revenues by an unknown 
amount. The motivation in changing the transfer policy was to 
solve a fare abuse problem which this Commission must deal with 
at some point. 

Commissioner Sanger suggested that enforcement be increased before 
changing the policy. 

Mr. Sklar said that he is convinced that collecting transfers 
will not solve the problem until there is a full self-service fare 
system in place with full time inspectors for enforcement. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to change the effective date for imple- 
menting the single use, single direction transfer to April 1, 
1983. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. Commissioner McCrea amended 
the effective date to June 1, 1983 so that preliminary revenue 
projections for next year could be taken into consideration at 
the same time. The amendment was accepted. Resolution No. 82-0531 
was unanimously adopted. 

Commissioner Sanger moved to continue the public hearing to 
January 25, 1983 to consider modification of Municipal Railway 
rates, fares and charges with respect to the adult Fast Pass and 
Senior citizens fares. Commissioner Lenvin seconded. On the 
question, Commissioners Flynn, McCrea, Sanger and Hsieh voted "aye", 
Commissioner Lenvin voted "no".

Resolution No. 82-0534 — Authorizing collection for damages 
arising from an accident on February 26, 1982 at Third and 
Sixteenth Streets. 

Mr. Sklar pointed out that this is a case where State law allows 
liability to be apportioned not according to the party's 
responsibility for causing an accident, but according to the 
party's ability to pay. 

Commissioner Sanger noted that there is also an apparent failure 
in the State law regarding sufficient liability coverage for 
trucking firms. He requested that the General Manager 
communicate these concerns to the City's Legislative lobbyist. 

************* 

Item No. 13--Regarding Amendment No. 3 to the professional 
services agreement with Robert B. Wong, A. I. A. 

Commissioner Sanger questioned paying additional money for work 
that should have been done under the original agreement. Mr. 
Oral Moore, Deputy General Manager and Chief Engineer, PUC , 
replied that the consultant had been permitted to proceed to 
final design before certain aspects regarding future expansion 
and Energy Conservation had been reconsidered. 

Commissioner Hsieh expressed his distress with the final design. 
He pointed out that certain design problems were created by 
not defining needs in the early stages of the contract. 

Commissioner McCrea moved to continue this matter to an 
executive session with counsel to discuss the legal ramifications 
of this Commission's options regarding this contract. 

Mr. Maurice Klebolt, President of CAP/Trans, requested that the 
Commission consider providing parking in this area. The 
President directed that staff address this issue. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82--0558--Authorizing a grant application for 
1983-84 State Article XIX, Guideway and Transportation planning 
Development and Transit Assistance and/or Bridge Toll Net 
Revenue funds. 

Ms. Louise Stoll, Director of Capital Resources Development, 
presented nine capital projects for State grant funding for 
fiscal year 1983-84. 

Commissioner McCrea stated that by including controversial pro- 
jects, such as the J-Line Light Rail Connection and the Trolley 
Overhead Extension #6 Parnassus Line, the Commission is 
reverting to a process where the funding moves the project 
along before public hearings have been held on the merits of 
the projects. He moved the adoption of the grant application 
with the deletion of the J-Line and 6-Parnassus projects. 
Commissioner Lenvin seconded. Resolution No. 82-0558 was 
unanimously adopted. 

************* 



82-262 



Resolution No. 82-0559 — Authorizing an agreement with Canon Kip 
for paratransit services. 

Mr. Thomas Jordan, Director of Special Projects, PUC , stated 
that staff is proposing to terminate the present agreement with 
Canon Kip because the level of service anticipated is not being 
provided. Instead, staff proposes a new agreement for four 
months which would allow Canon Kip to concentrate on group 
ride services. 

Mr. Eugene Coleman, Executive Director, Canon Kip Community 
House, stated that there have been major problems with the 
existing contract. He said that the change from a program 
cost to a unit cost, the solicitation for service by the 
paratransit broker rather than Canon Kip, and the change to a 
multi-modal paratransit system without an increase in clients 
have created a hardship for the agency. Canon Kip is carrying 
fewer passengers at a higher cost per ride. 

Commissioner Lenvin said that there are certain transit needs 
that are the responsibility of this Commission. Then, there 
are other social transportation needs which are the responsibility 
of other agencies, such as the Commission on Aging. All of 
these needs have not been fully coordinated. 

Ms. Adrianne Baker, Vice President, Coalition of Agencies Serving 
the Elderly (CASE), representing 60 agencies, stated that 
CASE supports: (1) the continuation of Canon Kip Operation 
Transportation as a paratransit service provider to the 
elderly and handicapped; (2) reimbursement of Canon Kip on a 
monthly basis for its costs; and (3) a public hearing to look 
into the transportation problems which affect the elderly 
and handicapped of San Francisco. 

Mr. Joe O'Donoghue, Director of Ambu-Trans, Inc., said that 
the original contract with Canon Kip and the proposed amendment 
are not workable. He said that increasing taxi paratransit 
service decreases Canon-Kip's revenue. 

Mrs. Willa Sims, representing Bayview/Hunters Point Seniors, 
spoke in support of Canon Kip and the services it provides 
to senior citizens. 

Ms. Evelyn Adler, representing the Kosher Nutrition Project, 
supported the service and suggested further discussion of 
problems . 

Ms. Cathy Koechlin, Assistant Director of Bayview/Hunters Point 
Multipurpose Senior Center and a member of the Paratransit 
Coordinating Council, said that the taxi program changed the 
mode of paratransit but it did not increase the number of 
people served. She said that the agency has received excellent 
service from Canon Kip in the past. The new contract being 
proposed would eliminate night and weekend service for group 
recreation . 

Mr. Jordan replied that the new contract does not preclude 
Canon Kip from providing weekend or evening service if it is 
beneficial to Canon Kip. They will receive payment for such 
trips. However, they will no longer be required to maintain 
service availability during these time periods. 



82-263 



Ms. Dolly White, a former driver and dispatcher for Canon Kip, 
spoke in favor of continuing Canon Kip service. 

Mr. George Davis, a professional gerontologist , said that 
Canon Kip has brought sensitivity to serving the elderly. He 
described the social aspects of van transportation versus taxi 
paratransit service. 

Ms. Judy Forestberg, a Canon Kip employee, said that 429 people 
were taken out of the van service program and placed in the 
taxi program by the paratransit broker. So far the broker has 
not replaced those clients. 

Mr. Jonnie Gilbert, President Transport Workers Union, Local 
250A, said that the union represents the Canon Kip drivers. 
In order to reduce Canon Kip's overhead cost, wheelchair rides 
were deleted from the proposed contract which will result in 
laying off some of the drivers. If the contract is not signed 
all of the drivers will be laid off. He questioned the brokers 
solicitation of wheelchair clients for the taxi program who were 
formerly being carried by Canon Kip. 

In response to questions by President Flynn, Mr. Coleman stated 
that he does not feel pressured to sign this contract. However, 
his agency does not endorse the service design. The agency feels 
it needs a mix of client population in order to "make it" . He 
said that it's not a contract made in heaven, but a marriage they 
can live with. 

************* 

Resolution No. 82-0560 — Authorizing amendment to the agreement 
with Luxor Cab Company. 

Mr. Jordan requested that the Commission authorize amendment to 
the agreement with Luxor Cab Company to provide the paratransit 
lift-assisted service to wheelchair clients that had been pro- 
vided by Canon Kip. Luxor will acquire three vehicles from 
Canon Kip immediately, with a possibility of three more later. 
He said that staff feels that wheelchair service should be 
provided at least 15 hours a day, 7 days a week. Elimination 
of this requirement would allow Canon Kip to reduce their overhead 
and streamline their operation. 

Commissioner Sanger expressed the opinion that the reimbursement 
for providing wheelchair service might be the means of making 
enough money to provide the shared ride service. Mr. Jordan 
replied that Canon Kip does not have the data necessary to 
identify the cost for each type of service.

Sklar had accomplished an almost impossible job by bringing 

the department from an archaic operation to a modern organization. 

Commissioner McCrea cited as Mr. Sklar ' s tangible legacy (1) the 
development of a long range planning process which resulted in 
the new format of the Municipal Railway 5-Year Plan, (2) the 
reorganization of the Bureaus of Financial Management and 
Management Information Systems, (3) the reforms in the job 
structure and organization of the Municipal Railway, and (4) the 
many talented and committed people which were brought into the 
organization and those who were identified within the organization 
and promoted.
